    This is the type of picture you'd usually see in black & white. Very cool, even jarring, to see one in color ('you mean the world wasn't black & white when you were a kid, grampa?' haha).

    Thanks for posting that. I love Calvin and Hobbes, and have all the books.

    Seller is claiming this is a photo of a young William F. Cody (it's not) but you could so easily recreate this photo with your BRE. I think the likeness is amazing!

    A little bear grease works wonders.

    That little springboard looks over powered.

  12. Maybe that's in the hills somewhere? Maybe San Francisco? Looks like lots of power lines overhead, meaning a big city population?

    Didn't notice the lines my first go round. I would imagine his route covered some territory.
     
  14. Maybe he was a man who liked having the "horsepower". I'm a big block man myself.

  18. Pershing was a Missouri native. I believe up in the North East part of the state where he lived there is quite a sculpture of him & a State Park named after him. Not sure if his home still stands or not.

    Brigadier General & 3-time Senator from as many states, James Shields' last home from 1866 still stands in my home town. It is a private home still today.

    Day laborers waiting to get picked up for a job in Raymondville, Texas, 1939.

    Another great photo taken by Russell Lee.
