    I had noticed the spot on their page a day or so ago. Good pics you posted. Looks like I need to crawl my way through them asap.

    Thanks for the site! I was especially surprised to see the section on Ft. Peck Montana. I used to go fishing and hunting in that area. While the town of Ft. Peck itself has improved considerably over the shanty town depicted in "New Deal", I swear some of it doesn't!

    Nice collection of photos, especially the color ones. One of them on the first page shows USS Hammann DD 412 - during the Battle of Midway, while moored alongside the damaged USS Yorktown to assist in salvaging operations, she was hit by one of four torpedoes aimed at the carrier. Her back broken, she sank within a few minutes.

    That is very cool stuff, I love seeing photographs from those days like that. It really brings some of the events to life to actually see pictures of them as they occured.
