How many things did you try before you found your calling (or passion/business idea etc)? I tried jewellery making, I sold cosmetics, made hand painted Christmas cards and even tried my hand at cake decorating (I was shit) all before I picked up a camera. I was working in corporate insurance and thoroughly miserable and had always wanted to work for myself. Luckily for me Mr Scott bought me a DSLR camera in 2006 and the rest is history... (well with a slight detour into self publishing along the way 😉)

One Quote One History: “If you want to increase your success rate, double your failure rate.” Thomas John Watson Sr. (February 17, 1874 – June 19, 1956) was an American businessman. He served as the chairman and CEO of International Business Machines (IBM) He oversaw the company's growth into an international force from 1914 to 1956. Watson developed IBM's management style and corporate culture from John Henry Patterson's training at NCR. He turned the company into a highly-effective selling organization, based largely on punched card tabulating machines. A leading self-made industrialist, he was one of the richest men of his time and was called the world's greatest salesman when he died in 1956. #onequoteonehistory #famousquote #businesshistory #historygeek

#OnThisDay in #1954 #Lyons #Leo produces a #payrollreport. It is the #firsttimeinhistory a #computer is used in #business.

The book #AComputerCalledLeo

The eccentric story of one of the most bizarre marriages in the history of British business: the invention of the world's #firstofficecomputer and the #LyonsTeashop.

The Lyons teashops were one of the great British institutions, providing a cup of tea and a penny bun through the depression and the war, though to the 1970s. Yet Lyons also has a more surprising claim to history.

In the 1930s John Simmons, a young maths graduate in charge of the clerks' offices, had a dream: to build a machine that would automate the millions of tedious transactions and process them in as little time as possible. Simmons' quest for the first office computer – the Lyons Electronic Office – would take 20 years and involve some of the most brilliant young minds in Britain.

Interwoven with the story of creating LEO is the story of early computing, from the Difference Engine of Charles Babbage to the codecracking computers at Bletchley Park and the instantly obsolescent ENIAC in the US. It is also the story of post war #Britishcomputerbusiness.

Employers used motivational posters like this one to encourage the behaviors they wanted to see in their staff.

With needle and thread, Elizabeth Keckley didn't just make clothing—she made a difference. Born into slavery, Keckley used her earnings as a dressmaker to purchase her freedom and that of her sons. After moving to Washington, D.C., Keckley opened a dressmaking shop where she created both day-to-day items and elaborate gowns, like the purple dress seen here. It is believed Keckley made this purple velvet skirt and daytime bodice owned by First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln. 
Keckley used her success as a businesswoman to help others. "If the white people can give festivals to raise funds for the relief of suffering soldiers, why should not the well-to-do colored people go to work to do something for the benefit of suffering blacks?" she wrote in her memoir. Keckley helped found the Contraband Relief Association. "Contraband" was the term used during the Civil War for formerly enslaved  people who rushed north, newly freed and in search of a better life.

Cocacola.

Las marcas más famosas del mundo empezaron con gente común, pero con mucha determinación. Por ejemplo, la marca Coca-Cola está valorada en $70.5 billones de dólares en el mercado actual. La empresa fue fundada en Atlanta-Georgia en 1886. Todo comenzó cuando el farmacéutico, John Pemberton, inventó un jarabe y lo llevó a una farmacia local. El empleado pensó que era excelente y lo puso a la venta por cinco centavos el vaso. Tras el invento John se anunció en un periódico local, haciendo un dibujo a mano, y colocó unos signos de hule que leían “Coca-Cola”. La respuesta fue exitosa. Durante su primer año se vendieron nueve bebidas por día. Hoy, se venden 1.600 billones de porciones diarias.

amhistorymuseum : Is your house divided whether to root for the Patriots or the Eagles?🏈 Debating whether to watch the Super Bowl or the Puppy Bowl?🐶 Maybe what you need is this television played two channels at once.📺 The DuMont Duoscopic Television was actually two televisions in the same cabinet, with mirrors and polarizers to combine the images. Viewers wore special Polaroid glasses and earpieces to cancel out the show they weren’t watching.

Is your house divided whether to root for the Patriots or the Eagles?🏈 Debating whether to watch the Super Bowl or the Puppy Bowl?🐶 Maybe what you need is this television played two channels at once.📺 The DuMont Duoscopic Television was actually two televisions in the same cabinet, with mirrors and polarizers to combine the images. Viewers wore special Polaroid glasses and earpieces to cancel out the show they weren’t watching.

We Can Do It!💪 Today, we’re reflecting on the legacy of Naomi Parker Fraley, who died last week at the age of 96. Fraley, a war worker during World War II, was recently identified as a possible inspiration for the worker who proclaims “We Can Do It!” in this famous World War II poster. 💪🏻💪🏼💪🏽💪🏾💪🏿 While scholars are still debating who the figure in the famous “We Can Do It!” poster is, the popularity of the poster is clear. During World War II, government agencies, businesses, and private organizations issued a variety of posters calling upon every American to support the war effort. This poster was originally created by artist J. Howard Miller for the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company. Although it was only displayed for a brief time in Westinghouse factories, the poster has become one of the most famous icons of World War II.

When the rugs were rolled up in preparation for painting, we were excited to find that the original labels and tags were still intact. This rug was made by the Bigelow-Hartford Carpet Company and purchased by Alice T. Miner at Marshall Field & Company in Chicago for $140.00. Established in 1914 by the merger of two companies, Bigelow-Hartford became the country’s biggest carpet manufacturer. At its height in the 1920s, the company’s mills in Thompsonville, Connecticut, employed over 13,000 people.

2018 Resolution: Take better photos 📷. Decades before selfie sticks were in vogue, Polaroid cameras like this Swinger 3000 gave people an affordable way to take photos and see the results within minutes. 
In 1947, Edwin H. Land, founder of the Polaroid Corporation, first demonstrated his instant photographic process. Years of research and development culminated in the Polaroid Land camera Model 95 in 1948. The camera held eight 3 ¼ x 4 ¼” sepia-toned images, which began processing in the camera and finished developing once pulled out of it. Prints were usually ready in under sixty seconds ⏱. The low-cost Swinger camera and Type 20C black and white film were introduced in 1965, just two years after Polaroid perfected instant color film. Prize-winning ad campaigns using slogans such as “$19.95 swings it” were effective. The Swinger line was so popular that the company produced later models like the Polaroid Big Swinger 3000.

2018 resolution: Start the weekend as early as possible. Frank Gilbreth's stopwatch might come in handy ⏱. In the early 1900s, Lillian Gilbreth and her husband Frank developed a system for analyzing human motion in time using custom stopwatches, specialized timers, and still and moving pictures. Their main clients were industrial managers, who sought to increase worker output while saving time and 💵. Their study subjects were workers, whose job satisfaction the Gilbreths hoped to increase as they decreased wasted motions. 
The Gilbreths did not invent stopwatch studies. In fact, watches were secondary in their system of motion study—a direct reaction to worker resistance to earlier stopwatch studies conducted in industrial workplaces by management reformer Frederick Winslow Taylor beginning in the 1880s. Taylor's approach came to be known as Taylorism or "scientific management" and included numerous measures to make industry more productive and cost-efficient. 
Taylor's work inspired generations of industrial engineers, many of whom continued to use stopwatches in their research well into the 1960s—much to workers' dismay.

The Duke Homestead team visited @spoonflower today for a factory tour. We loved seeing local entrepreneurs with a global reach, which helps us think about the Dukes in a new (21st century) light! Plus, we have a LOT of sewing to do for our historical clothing and needed some extra inspiration!

Which Durham entrepreneur, startup, visionary, or maker should we visit next?
