Rare WWI dated building (1915). Construction all but ground to a halt for four years with a dire shortage of builders' labourers, who were off fighting European wars for The Empire. Don't know that they would have been much concerned with architectural door knobs at the time. Leichhardt.

Conrad Veidt (1893-1943).
German actor.
.
Beginning his acting career on stage, he debuted in films at the age of 24 and quickly gained international attention for his performances in silent films. Later, he began acting in talkies and became equally successful in them.
.
He was in a relationship with Lucie Mannheim from 1914 to 1915, then in 1918, Veidt married Gussy Holl, a cabaret entertainer. They divorced in 1922 and he married Felizitas Radke, who came from an aristocratic German-Jewish, in 1923. Their daughter was born in 1925 and after her birth, Veidt was so hysterical from joy they had to sedate him and keep him in the hospital overnight. He last married Ilona "Lilli" Barta Prager, a Hungarian Jew, in Berlin in March 1933.
Veidt was bisexual and a feminist.
.
After a successful career in German silent films, where he was one of the best-paid stars of UFA, he and his new Jewish wife Ilona Prager were forced to leave Germany in 1933 after the Nazis came to power. The couple settled in Britain, where he took British citizenship in 1939. For the next nine years, he acted in number of British productions including "The Thief of Baghdad".
.
Even after leaving England, Veidt was concerned over the plight of children cooped up in London air raid shelters, and he decided to try to cheer up their holiday. Through his attorneys in London, Veidt donated enough money to purchase 2,000 one-pound tins of candy, 2,000 large packets of chocolate, and 1,000 wrapped envelopes containing presents of British currency. The gifts went to children of needy families in various air raid shelters in the London area during Christmas 1940.
.
In 1941, he moved to the USA, where he was casted as Major Strasser in Casablanca (1942).
.
In the 1930s, Veidt discovered that he had the same heart condition that his mother had died from. The condition was further aggravated by chain smoking, and Veidt took nitroglycerin tablets.
.
Conrad Veidt died of a massive heart in 1943.
.
Famous movies:
The Man Who Laughs
Different from the Others
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

I'm obssessed with the lacy details of early 1900s (1900s-1910s) lingerie dresses, they're so refined yet wearable.
Most of these are in such an amazing condition it's hard to believe they're over a century old.

Recipe Wednesday #46
Happy Recipe Wednesday!
These are real early-20th century recipes, taken from the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, a local newspaper that would have been accessible to Steve, his mother, and Bucky during their time in Brooklyn.
This week’s recipes come from the Tuesday 27 October 1931 edition of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. For context, Steve would have been 11 (comics) / 13 (MCU) when this recipe was printed.
Alligator Pear Salad
1 alligator pear 2 slice pineapple (fresh or canned) 1 teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon paprika 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1 teaspoon lime juice Lettuce Peel alligator pear and cut pulp in small pieces. Cut pineapple in cubes. Have twice as much pear as pineapple. Arrange on crisp head of lettuce leaves. Mix the rest and pour over fruit.
Baked Creole Rice
2 cupfuls cooked rice 1 ½ cupfuls consomme 1 ½ cupfuls tomato soup 1 onion 1 tablespoonful minced green pepper Seasoning to taste ¼ pound sliced bacon Add the rice gradually to the boiling consomme. Place over hot water and let steam for 20 minutes, or until the consomme is absorbed. Brown the bacon slightly and remove to another pan. Cook the sliced onion and minced pepper in the bacon fat until well browned. Add to the tomato soup. Put the rice in a baking dish. Cover with the tomato soup and slices of bacon. Brown in a quick oven.
Southern Beaten Biscuit
2 cupfuls flour 1/3 cupful shortening 1 teaspoonful salt Milk and water Sift the flour and salt. Work in the shortening and moisten to a stiff dough with equal quantities of milk and water combined. Place mixture on floured board and beat with rolling pin for at least 30 minutes, folding the dough every few minutes. Roll to one-third-inch in thickness, shape with small biscuit cutter and prick with a fork. Then place on greased baking sheet. Bake in a hot oven, from 400 to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, for 20 minutes.
Hamburg Pastry Roll
1 ½ pound top round steak 1 ½ teaspoons salt ¼ teaspoon white pepper 2 tablespoons minced onion ¾ cup bread crumbs 1 ½ cups strained canned tomatoes 2 eggs 2 teaspoons minced parsley Trim steak, run through meat grinder, add beaten eggs and other ingredients except tomatoes. Mix lightly with a fork. Turn into well-greased biscuit pan, shape into a long narrow loaf, pour tomatoes over, bake in a lot oven 400 degrees for 20 minutes, basting occasionally. While meat is baking, make a biscuit dough of 1 ½ cups flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder and ½ teaspoon salt, sifted together; cut in ¼ cup shortening, mix to a soft dough with ½ cup milk. Roll dough in oblong sheet, then cover meat roll completely with it. Return to oven and bake pastry about 25 minutes. Remove roll carefully to platter. Add ½ cup water and 1 tablespoon butter to juices in pan; let boil up several times; serve as gravy to loaf. Add ¼ cup tomato juice if more gravy is desired.
Stuffed lambs’ Hearts
Carefully wash and trim loose edges from the hearts, allowing one to each person and parboil in water to which has been added a tablespoonful of vinegar. For the stuffing, take one cupful stale breadcrumbs, a half teaspoonful of poultry seasoning, a small onion which has been fried in a tablespoonful of butter and a strip of bacon cut in small pieces. Mix these ingredients and add to them a whole unbeaten egg and sufficient soup stock or water to moisten. Mix thoroughly before filling the hearts, and after filling, bake them base side down for an hour. Pour a half cupful of water into the pan and baste the hearts frequently. This amount of stuffing provides for about three hearts.
Watermelon Preserve
Cut off the rind of the watermelon and remove all of the red pulp. Cut into dice. Put in a stone jar, add one-half cupful of salt to every five pounds of watermelon. Cover with cold water and let stand five hours. Drain and cover with fresh water, changing the water several times. Allow to soak about two hours. Make a syrup using two and one-half pounds of sugar and one and one-half quarts of water. Boil five minutes and then add the watermelon. Simmer gently until clear and tender. Remove from the syrup. Add the rind of a lemon, the juice of two lemons and a small piece of ginger root, cut in thin slices. Boil gently for ten minutes. Fill sterilized jars with the watermelon, cover with the boiling syrup and seal.
Hot Chocolate
1 ½ squares chocolate ¼ cupful sugar 3 cupfuls milk Salt, few grains 1 cupful boiling water 1 teaspoonful vanilla Scald milk. Melt chocolate in double boiler, add sugar and salt. Then add boiling water, stirring until smooth. Boil five minutes, add vanilla. Then add mixture to scalded milk, beat until foamy. Serve with whipped cream or marshmallows.
Plum Pudding Sauce
1 cupful powdered sugar ¼ cupful butter 2 eggs 1/3 cupful top milk or cream 2 tablespoons non-alcoholic sherry flavoring Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the sherry flavoring and the well-beaten egg yolks.When thoroughly mixed stir in the milk or cream. Cook in a double boiler until consistency of custard and then gradually pour it into the stiffly beaten egg whites, beating constantly.
Dutch Apple Cake
2 cups flour 4 tablespoonful fat 1 teaspoonful salt 5 teaspoons baking powder Milk 5 sour apples ¾ cup sugar cinnamon Make as for baking powder biscuits [see below]. Spread in a buttered dripping pan and brush over with melted butter. Pare, cut in eights and remove cores from apples. Press sharp edges of apples into the dough in parallel rows lengthwise of pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon mixed with sugar. Bake in a hot oven 450 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Serve hot or cold with whipped cream.
Orange Biscuits
2 tablespoons grated orange rind 4 teaspoons baking powder 4 tablespoons shortening 2 cups flour Milk ½ teaspoon salt Orange juice; loaf sugar Mix and sift flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening with a knife. Add orange rind and enough milk to make a soft dough. Roll out on slightly floured board to ½ inch thickness. Cut with a small biscuit cutter. Dip loaf sugar in orange juice and press a piece into the top of each biscuit. Bake in a quick oven (450 degrees) for 13 to 15 minutes.
Chocolate Eclairs
Put one-half cupful of butter and one cupful boiling water in a saucepan and bring to the boiling point. The sift in one cupful flour and beat vigorously. When this mixture forms a ball and does not stick to the pan, turn it into a bowl and allow to cool about three minutes. The beat in thoroughly three unbeaten eggs, one at a time. Reserve a little egg for the top. Put mixture through a pastry bag onto a greased baking sheet and make the eclairs about 1 inch wide and 4 inches long. Brush with the egg reserved from the mixture diluted with one teaspoonful of milk, and bake in a moderate oven about 35 minutes. When cold, cover with a chocolate icing. Whip stiff one-half pint of cream, add one-half teaspoonful of vanilla and two teaspoonfuls of confectioners’ sugar. Slit the side of the eclairs, fill with whipped cream and serve.
Baking Powder Biscuit
2 cups flour 4 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons shortening ¾ cup liquid (all milk or half milk and water) Mix dry ingredients and sift twice. Work in shortening with tips of the fingers or cut in with two knives. Add the liquid gradually mixing with a knife to a soft dough. Owing to the differences in flour, it is not always possible to determine the exact amount of liquid. Toss on a floured board, pat the roll lightly to one-half in thickness. Shape with a biscuit cutter. Bake in hot oven (450-460 degrees) 12 to 15 minutes.
Emergency Biscuit
Use the recipe for baking powder biscuit, using more liquid to make the dough soft enough to drop from the spoon. The amount of the liquid in this recipe, in most cases, will be just half the amount of flour (two cups of flour to one cup liquid). Drop the biscuit on to a well-greased pan, or into greased muffin-tins. Bake in a hot oven (450-460 degrees).
Royal Philadelphia Cinnamon Buns
1 cup sugar 4 ½ cups flour 1 teaspoonful salt 8 teaspoons baking powder 4 tablespoons shortening 2 eggs 1 cup water 4 teaspoons cinnamon 8 tablespoons seeded raisins Sift four tablespoons measured sugar with flour, salt and baking powder; rub shortening in lightly. Add beaten eggs to water and add slowly to dry ingredients to make soft dough. Roll ¼-inch thick on floured board; brush with melted butter: sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon and raisins. Roll as for jelly roll. Cream 6 tablespoons butter with 6 tablespoons brown sugar. Spread this mixture on bottom and side of iron baking pan or iron skillet. Cut dough in 2-inch pieces, place with cut edges up in pan. Allow to stand 15 minutes; bake in hot oven at 425 degrees about 35 minutes. Remove from pan at once, turning upside down to serve.
