Putting That Into Perspective

One of the more fascinating aspects of researching Norma Niblock was learning a great deal more about the business of Mineralava. It is astounding that Rudolph Valentino and Natacha Rambova were paid what they were at 7000$ a week for those three months. By the current inflation calculator that would be 119,700$ a week today. 

I found this little chart of the cost of living in 1924 which puts that into perspective. 

The ramifications of such expenditures for the manufacturer of Mineralava clay are also interesting and I will be talking about all of that in a podcast very soon. Many more Mineralava discoveries and anecdotes!
