    "...Jordan's stream is a wonder, and I never fail to be amazed at the amount of ephemera he has collected. I have often joked to him that his site must be some sort of portal to solving the mysteries of the universe, but even if that never comes to pass in the literal sense, the time spent exploring all his stuff will be like a magic carpet ride through the history of Americana..."

    "My very favorite flickr member and inspiration for creating my own flickr account.

    Users should take lessons from Jordan's pride in SHARING, as opposed to hoarding which is what many flickr members do."

    "This photostream is enormous fun; great retro ads, postcards, catalogs, and ephemera. Nice scans, too! 'Course, every time I see that moniker about the pie shops I get hungry, though..."
