📷 from the #aCreativeDC feed via @amhistorymuseum: “We're excited to share that Selena’s motorcycle jacket and satin bustier are now on display for one year in our "American Enterprise" exhibition. But why would #Selena objects be on display in a #BusinessHistory exhibition? We're exploring the history of Hispanic advertising! These photos for a Coca-Cola ad campaign were taken by Al Rendon in 1994.

Short term contractors do not create 'institutional memory'. This is true not just from a company staffing perspective but also true when companies look back on their company history and try to glean company values, ethics and stories. 
What makes a place great to work at? After the usual checklist of salary, hours and purpose, employees find huge reassurance in a company with a past, with a proud history and definitely a space where others have come and worked, sometimes for an entire lifetime!

Let me introduce you to Carl Johan Andersson, the partner of Lars Magnus Ericsson, the man who created well known Ericsson corporation. 
From Wikipedia:
"Lars Magnus Ericsson upon his return to Sweden in 1876, he founded a small mechanical workshop together with his friend Carl Johan Andersson who had also worked at Öllers & Co.. This workshop was actually a former kitchen of some 13 m2 situated at Drottninggatan 15 in the most central part of Stockholm. Here, he started a telephone company by analyzing Bell company and Siemens telephones and creating his own copies in their image. It was not until they started cooperating with Henrik Tore Cedergren in 1883 that the company would start to grow into the Ericsson corporation."

While you’re busy making history with your business, do you ever wonder about the business concepts and entrepreneurs that came before you? Did their dreams last and if not why? Am I doing this right or making the same mistakes they did? What clues are available to me and where can I find them? Where do I search if I want the right answers to what next? That’s what was on my mind today while watching buckets of history being hoisted to the surface at “Cite d’ archeologie te d’ histoire de Montreal” the largest excavation site and live dig in Canada. Parliament and the capital building of the United Canada used to stand in this spot. Prior to being excavated the building had been long forgotten and even turned into a parking lot.  #montreal #officewithoutwalls #myofficehasnowalls #canada #archeology #history #businesshistory #entrepreneur #travel #travelphotography #travelblogger #travelpic

Yesterday was national coffee day! On Tuesday October 3rd we'll be talking about something else that starts with a "c" and gives you a buzz! That's right: it's an all new episode on COLUMBUS AND CANNIBALISM!!! #pbsoriginofeverything

Order coffee in 32 languages! B. Fischer & Co. created this booklet to help newcomers to the U.S. request the popular beverage. The booklet notes, "By comparison of these languages it will be interesting to note that the word COFFEE is pronounced very much the same in all languages." ☕

At the end of the booklet, there's a reminder to "Ask for Fischer's Coffees," of course, as well as a guide to telling one's fortune with coffee grounds. (We haven't tried this out yet but apparently if you see a star shape, you will find happiness. Congrats.) ⭐

Published around 1905, the booklet contains illustrations that today we would recognize as offensive caricatures. According to a blog post published by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, "Benedickt Fischer himself, of B. Fischer & Co., was a German immigrant who came to New York in 1855 and set up his own coffee roasting business around 1861." ☕

We hope you have a great #NationalCoffeeDay, no matter what language you use to order your warm (or iced!) cup of joe. Thanks for being friends with us here on Instagram and have a history-filled weekend, folks! ☕ Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Archives Center, National Museum of American History
