Nice to see a well dressed crowd at a ball game in 1912. Before the collapse of civilization, long before.

I’d go back in time to 1912 in a minute if I could bring along a supply of modern medicines.

The photo of Osama. Do you mean second from left? The second from right looks like a girl.

Great photographs by the way. Poor Czar Nicholas. I wonder if he had any idea at that moment what would become of him and his family.

The good old days when the Republican party still existed and we didn’t have a communist foreigner as POTUS and didn’t pay terrorists $100,000 in welfare.

Yep. That's what I looked like in 1980. I had a nice hat, though.

That pic looks a bit older than 1980.

My personal favorite is the “1980 child laborers”. The Carter administration was far worse than we ever imagined. ;)

I'm only going by the text included w/ the photo...so can't be certain. That "earring" I think is on the building in the background.

What interesting about old photos like this is that we can only look back to maybe a 150 year limit when it comes to photography. After that, all you get is paintings. As time moves on, that gap will increase until it will be an insanely large gap, for example 5000 years from now (if liberals don’t destroy mankind first) people can look at digital photos and videos that will look like they were taken a second ago. Can you imagine that? Being able to look back on Egyptian times, Roman times or the era of when Helen Thomas was born?

The photo of Nagasaki reminds me of how my father described what he saw. He was just across the mountains, in Omuta.

Cool pics. You know, an unusual thing I found out about Chaplin was/is how insanely attracted women are to the guy. I couldn’t believe it when I heard about that. The Tramp? The goofy waddling guy with the cane? For example if you go to IMDB, it’s just one post after another by women fawning over the guy. It’s really bizarre.

Interesting that you say that; I've always told my friends and family that, except for medical care, I'd take myself back to those days in a Pittsburgh minute.

I like the BVD ad in that photo. Apparently “loose-fitting” underwear was a big selling point in 1912.

Those are great.

I have some of a series that I keep that have some special interest to me.

My dad started in General Construction in 1937. I spent about 45 years prior to relocating in that business as well. The Builders Association has taken banquet room photos since before 1900 of the annual dinner using a large old style press camera. They continued to produce these after many newer styles would have been substituted due to the tradition. They were made in extreme wide angle and covered hundreds of members and their spouses all seated at round tables — generally about 200 to 400. They were issued in large 11 x 17 sizes and you could blow them up and see a lot of detail.

I can look in those old photos and see friends of my dad’s (now deceased) who were older than him by many years that he had pointed out to me in these photos decades ago. You can see the three and four generations of family businesses, tycoons now long gone, and old buddy’s in their youth. They are truely great.

I found The Tramp nearly ugly. Then, I saw how Charlie Chaplin really looked. He was funny, British, and very attractive. That isn’t going into his flaws. That is just the initial attraction.

Regarding the Nagasaki photo, I wonder from what distance that photo was taken. My father was at that moment across the bay from Nagasaki, some 30 miles distant, at the Fukuoka POW camp, where I imagine he had a similar view. POWs working the nearby mines apparently got quite a shakeup. Dad said the prisoners were musing that "the Americans must've hit one helluva big ammo dump!"

At that moment as well, many Japanese POW prison guards were deserting their posts, whether for fear of an invasion, or to look after their families that lived not too distant, was unknown. Dad said those guards that stayed were quickly overpowered by the throngs of prisoners, mostly emaciated but emboldened by the tide's apparent turn. Several guards were pulled limb from limb in pointed revenge for years of awful, abusive treatment of the prisoners.

In the days ahead, the prisoners formed parties that forayed into the countryside to find Allied troops, which they eventually did near Nagasaki. The prisoners were taken mostly by ship to Manilla, the Phillipines, where they spent the time through Thanksgiving of '45 to recuperate somewhat before being sent home.

When my dad appeared unannounced on his parents' doorstep (in Bandoeng, Dutch East Indies), they didn't recognize him, as he weighed 88lbs., about half his weight prior to the war. His grandfather and an aunt had died during his internment. All his relatives, who were Dutch, spent time in concentration camps, where they also found times were difficult under Japanese supervision.

And that was just some of what was going on slightly out of that frame.

Thank you, mightily!

They had a retrospective about him on AMC a week or two ago, and the ladies said, when he wasn’t in the “tramp” get-up, he was the most handsome, suave man they’d ever met.
