From The Desk Of Dr. Shapiro: Keep Our History Alive

A large void in this optical industry of ours was the relevant and concise history
of the fashion aspect of the Vintage Eyewear industry. So many companies changed
hands so many times between reps and manufacturing that very few people know the
fashion history of the sunglasses industry. Obviously the medical aspects were all
documented, but the fashion part seems to have fallen between the cracks. It has
almost become a lost part of the optical industry. It is our duty as Vintage
Sunglasses collectors and lovers to keep this history alive. It isn't enough to know
what a frame is called, strive to know where it comes from, who whore it, and even
why it was produced! It is important to educate the future of this world in Vintage
Eyewear history so unlike our generation the components that have influenced and
progressed the optical industry do not get lost through the cracks!

Hold it the fuck down.
