You have to watch this trailer for the film ‘Populaire’, if this doesn’t get you in the mood for your ‘9 to 5 job’ nothing will.
Showing as part of the ‘Le Long Weekend’ festival and soon to be released by E1 later in May I just had to get my hands on a ticket. So I booked (via the telephone of course) as soon as the festival tickets went live. I haven’t seen the film but I think for anyone who has worked in an office, has a dream and loves vintage – this film is a must.
Since watching the trailer (maybe a few more times than I should admit to) I have seen typewriters every where (I clearly have them on the brain). They are fab but for someone like me who can’t spell it’s not too good on the old tipex!
With that in mind enjoy these images below from the 6th of May 1925 copy of the newspaper The Isis and a book called Mechanical Brides made possible by Smithsonian Institution:
If all this has put you in a good mood about getting ready for work in the morning then why not add something new and different to your wardrobe. Here are some of my finds for your ‘9 to 5 role’:
