Here’s what you said:
FROM BILL STICKELS III: This week’s “What is it” is the lamppost from the movie “Singin’ in the Rain.” Ironically, I just recently took photos of a local youth theatre company performing that very musical!
FROM PAUL COATES: It’s the street scene from Gene Kelly’s Singing in the Rain performance in the movie of the same name. Debbie Reynolds, Cyd Charisse and Donald O’Connor were the other dancers in the movie.
FROM TERRY PUGH: It looks like the set for the movie “Singing in the Rain” starring Gene Kelly.
FROM JOEL: I believe that’s the lamppost around which Gene Kelly twirled while he sang in the rain.
FROM LYNNE HUMMELL: This is the lamp post from “Singing in the Rain.” Missing only Gene Kelly!
FROM JOE SHAW: “I’m siiiiiiiingin’ in the rain …”
FROM STAN SCHWARTZ: That looks a lot like the light pole Gene Kelly spun around while singing “Singing in the Rain” in the movie with the same title.
FROM JOHN PEERY: It’s the lamp post from Gene Kelly’s “Singing in the Rain.” Even though I’ve been around a while, this movie is even older than me.
FROM STEPHEN G: It’s the light pole from Singing in the Rain.
This steering wheel is from what automobile?

FONT FREAKS REJOICE! Adobe has just added more than 600 fonts to Creative Cloud.
What’s more, they’ll soon release type innovation tools “that will allow users to seamlessly browse, filter and sort through the roughly 9,000 fonts on Adobe Typekit without the hassle of having to leave their canvas,” according to the folks at creativebloq.com.
For those of us who work with type, the font drop is a blessing…and a curse. A blessing because it will give us more great fonts to work with. A curse because it will give us more really, really bad fonts to have to browse through as we search for the gems.
