Sunglasses History

Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses have been manufactured by Ray-Ban since 1956, when their design was a revolutionary break from the metal eyewear of the past. Wayfarers enjoyed early popularity in the 1950s and 1960s.

Since 1700, Wine Glasses Have Gotten 7 Times Bigger

The era of the tiny glass has passed. Reinhard Sebastian Zimmermann/Public DomainWe tend to think of our ancestors as hard drinkers. It’s fair, considering that for centuries booze was safer to drink than water.But according to a British study published Wednesday, drinking, especially wine, is actually on the rise—and the way a wine glass’s size has grown over time might have something to do with it. In 1700, the average British wine glass held 66 milliliters of liquid. The wine glasses of...
