Jules Printing and Stationery in Long Island City has been “serving you since 1933.” Their windows, however, haven’t been changed since the mid 1980s, and serve as a time capsule of late 20th century office supplies. Liquid Paper in all colors, rolls of tape, and sun-bleached packages of post-its are sparsely displayed behind glass and a film of 25-year old dust. It wasn’t until I looked closely at the photos, that I noticed the ancient data storage and protection device--a key-locking case for 3 ½” floppy disks. The kind you may have had on your desk, next to your first Mac in 1984.
