Who Lived in Your House in 1940? Here’s a splendid diversion if you’re a data nerd, a history buff, or even just like good detective work: Tell the story of the family that lived in your house in 1940.

Who Lived in Your House in 1940?

A bit more background. If you are in the United States, you probably remember participating in the Decennial Census in 2010. These forms are kept confidential for 72 years—roughly an average American’s life span. But this same rule means that today (actually, a couple of days ago), the 1940 Census results became public information.

My friend Sue Dynarski alerted me to all this, and issued the 1940 Census Challenge. It took me a while, but I found my house. The three families provide an interesting snapshot of Depression-era Philadelphia. First, the Chisom’s, who had moved to Philadelphia from Blackville, South Carolina.

Riusuke Fukahori Paints Three-Dimensional Goldfish Embedded in Layers of Resin

Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori paints three-dimensional goldfish using a complex process of poured resin. The fish are painted meticulously, layer by layer, the sandwiched slices revealing slightly more about each creature, similar to the function of a 3D printer.
