"The first icon is the French fashion designer, best known as the founder of one of the world’s top fashion houses, also called Christian Dior. He began his fashion career after he was forced to close his art gallery after the financial disaster. He worked with fashion designer Robert Piguet until being called up for military service. After leaving the army in 1942, he joined Pierre Balmain as one of the primary designers for Lucien Lelong. During the war, he worked in the French fashion industry and for economics and artistic reasons, had to dress the wive of the Nazi officers and French collaborators in order to remain in business (as did Jeanne Lanvin and Nina Ricci among others). During this time, his sister was held in a concentration camp for being a part of the French Resistance. She was liberated in 1945. It was in 1946 that Dior founded his fashion house. His first collection, presented in 1947, was called Corelle, but it was the editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar, Carmel Snow, who coined it as the New Look." quoted from: http://blog.meghanhibberd.com/2011/12/02/fashion-forecast-6/

Paul Robeson - Ol' Man River (Showboat - 1936) 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eh9WayN7R-s&index=2&list=RDgtLcELU1brA

"Old Man River: The song Old Man River is closely linked to the status od the African American community in the United States. The song was written for the 1927 musical Show Boat. Originally written by Oscar Hammerstein and set to music by Jerome Kern, the song stands out because of the relatively rare pentatonic scale used and the bass solo that is still rarer in musicals. The song talks of the Mississippi river that flows on, unaffected by the plight of the African Americans who work on its shores. Paul Robeson sang the song when the musical was made into a movie in 1936. The lyrics of the song were revised numerous times as the status of the African-Americans changed in American society. Paul Robeson altered the song, originally sang as a song of despair into a song of resistance. After 1938, Paul Robeson refused to sing the original lyrics anymore. The song has inspired numerous other works and parodies, including Bhupen Hazarika's Ye Ganga behti ho kyun? This recording is from the 1949 Tchaikovsky Hall performance." http://beta.bodhicommons.org/article/paul-robeson-the-baritone-of-the-oppressed

My grandfather told tales of his post-war citroen (model unknown) - he liked to watch the reactions of gas station guys after 'stepping to the restroom' before the car's air shocks settled...it looked like it had quietly died.
