And an old favourite of mine
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.
I had no idea about this. Great stuff, thank you very much.
Yes, many thanks for the 'Heads Up'.
Great link, thanks for the heads up!
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!
Thank you, I will be away for the next 6 months!
" Stay back kids the ugly one is coming "
Thank you very much for the link.
I now have only one problem, i cannot decide which picture to use as my desktop backround.
Yeah, Ol' UniTesticle himself.
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.
Thanks, Za! I can see I'll get lost at this site for awhile!
Don't thank me, all who did, thank Life and thank Google
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.
one of my favourites: If you haven't recognized him yet, imagine him about 25 years older with a cigar
Winston Churchill, this shot must be from WWI.
that is correct. Great picture isn't it!
