If you like to cook and like classic old cast iron, may I present to you, http://blackirondude.blogspot.com/.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again, any man that doesn't know how to cook, or turns pale and sneaks away when confronted with the thought of food preparation, well, he's as useless as tits on a bull.
This nice blog incorporates the history, care and proper handling techniques of classic cast iron cookware. After just a bit of research in the archives of his blog I discovered a frying pan I purchased back in the 1970's is at least 100 years old; Its an old piece of Pique Ware. His photographs are top notch too. Take a look...
Have a great evening.
