To be more specific, it's a Western Mottled Corncrake. As you'll see from the feet, it's a female so should be making its distinctive Whoop, whoop, whoop call.

Today : the guest bathroom in Tex Ritter's ranch house, as seen in 1958
Tex Ritter (January 12, 1905 – January 2, 1974) was an American country music singer and movie actor popular from the mid-1930s into the 1960s, and the patriarch of the Ritter family in acting (son John and grandsons Jason and Tyler). He is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Tex was an inveterate joker, and the lid of the toilet cannot be lowered... a prank that was there to annoy his wife.

Well, perhaps now you will learn.

Bonus 2 - Top Trick

I hesitate to be as crude as to use the phrase "Retro MILF", but, there is an aspect of that in this slide subject. Maybe it's the hairdo, but there's also a bit of Rosie The Riveter as well.
Bonus - Happy Birthday to John Cruikshank VC
Bonus 2 - Found It ! The best album review ever. From Sounds in 1981, it's by Curt Vile of "Loud" by Half Japanese.

Making a pleasant change from the usual "I Has Caught A Fish" slide, here we have Jayant wheelbarrowing away a load of fish.
Not "Wheelbarrowing" in a sexual sense, but in a literal sense.

Bonus 2 - Inflating a set of Cat Lungs (Yeuch!)

If you were thinking that those were the localised names of Curly, Moe and Larry (The Three Stooges) in Honduras ... you would be wrong.
Any student of the history of the Dominican Republic (like myself) will recognise them as La Trinitaria.
For those who just went "Duhhhhh!", get some learning.
Bonus - Nonchalant

I usually limit the number of young ladies in bikinis slides that I post, because
1. I don't have that many of them, and
2. They may attract the wrong sort of visitor. Like me.
But, rules are made to be broken.
So... Enjoy !
Bonus - Vertical Take-Off

Bonus 2 : ...best unsupported performance...

Yes, sometimes The Slide Guy just select a slide based upon prettiness. No all featured slides are of ugly kids, weird relations, tedious churches or potential serial killer sites.
Sometimes, just a pretty flower is enough.

I'm sure that most people will recognize The Johnson Jalopy, but for the sake of education...
This is the converted ski-lift that transports tourist down the cliffs of Matlock Bath to reach the house that Boris Johnson (the former London Mayor) was born in in 1965.
As a protest, the operators of this contraption will only transport 90% of tourist back up the cliffs. If you're one of the annoying tourists who complain or tip too lightly, you'll find yourself climbing up the steep 500 ft path back to the top of the cliffs.
Bonus - The Forgotten ‘China Girls’ Hidden at the Beginning of Old Films

I find slides like this fascinating.
Clearly someone forgot to use his Light-Meter, and massively under-exposed these slides...and yet, you could probably just about figure out the subject and the event. Just how bad does a bad wedding slide have to be to be unrecognizable?
Bonus - Giant Lion Sculpture Carved from Single Tree Trunk Took 20 People and 3 Years to Complete
Bonus 2 - Worrying.

In response to very-nearly one request, I thought it's time to prove that Slide Collecting is so much more than boring parades, sunsets, kids birthdays and fish displaying.
To clebrate the arrival of May, here have a Blonde Babe on a Beach in a Black Bikini.
