Local history. The old cinemas of Sheffield, via the view from here. The latter also introduced us, through this gallery of 70s rock superstars, to the huge (I mean, enormous) visual database that is Steve Johnson's labour of love: Cyber-Heritage. There's too much to list here, but it's worth noting that the site places a welcome emphasis on the decade that the internet forgot: the 1970s. For starters, take a trip around such visual wonders as this early twentieth century visit by an early French submarine (more), or spot airliners at Heathrow in the 1970s. Staying 70s, this appears to be a record of a school trip to Paris - you can even see the construction of the Tour Montparnasse. And look at all the Citroens!

Still more from Cyber-Heritage: women in British advertising during WWII. Admittedly, the site is rather Plymouth (England)-centric, but that hardly matters, especially when you have pages on shopping bag art from 'famous' Plymouth stores of the 1970’s. (For reasons unknown, Plymouth escapes an entry on The Idler’s infamous Crap Towns website (which has now, inevitably, become a book). I guess you need a souped up Pontiac Aztek to drive around a crap town). Staying local. Peckham strives for a local paper-style ambience with its street warden diary. It's not quite the Framley Examiner, but very nearly.

The huge online Picasso archive, via me-fi. You can get big pictures, too (not bad for a 12-year old) / a gallery of Barbara Hepworth’s garden in St Ives, Cornwall, via Self Winding. The Tate is currently celebrating the sculptor’s centenary / we should save this for the end of the month, but it's too good to miss: Extreme Pumpkins, via In my diatribe / we've played Grim Fandango, but having read this appreciation over at Gamespy, I now want to track down a copy. You can get the in-game music here / the Wayward Shoe Project at Open Brackets / the London text map, via Transport Blog / if you can penetrate the depths of the Deep North’s twisting prose, there’s an interesting factoid in here about fishing boats. No, really.

The Commune by the Great Wall, a modernist architecture experiment in China / architecture practice Atelier Van Lieshout get kinky / a photographic tour around the V&A’s "Zoomorphic: new animal architecture" exhibition, via Dezain. Visit the official exhibition site / eyeballs for sale, via Caterina. More vintage medical equipment at Antique Mystique. Their lunchbox collection is great too, as is the babyboomer gallery and the piles and piles of books. Slightly creepier is Dr Used, ‘used medical equipment exchange service’ (who buys from here?). Ebay’s medical listings are very browsable too. Even more bizarre bargains at Recycledgoods.com.

A huge collection of Soviet Propoganda, via The Cartoonist / ghostwriter presents an alternative point of view for every BBC news story (slightly more sophisticated than the Daily Telegraph's Beebwatch, while others do this in an even more hysterical fashion. Anyway, the hot BBC stories aren't political at all - they're all about cryptozoology) / a secret smile, thrown askew, of adam, some weblogs we've spotted / you are now entering Greeneland: when literary parody is almost too accurate.

Finally, we have a new comments systems, courtesy of Enetation. Actually, the comments have been there for months, it's just we only got them to work properly yesterday. Drop us a line.
