I have a certain fascination with history. I wouldn't call myself a fanatic by any means. Merely a casual observer.

That said, I have always found myself captivated with pictures, maps, and places of eras gone by. So here is something I saw on my Flickr page that has held me captive again for the morning.

The Library of Congress' photostream on Flickr.

Does he know our big secret?
Has one of us confessed?
'Bout the wires circuits and motors
Buried in our chest

Very cool Shroom. Another good site for historical images is shorpy.com
I get distracted there for hours. [Smile]

The Library of Congress has some cool exhibits on their website too. As a librarian, I link to their stuff a lot.
