I couldn't decide where else to post this (I was looking for "History"), so I'll leave it to the wisdom of the moderators whether or not this needs to be moved to another category.

New on my virtual desk:  "The U.S. Navy published a series of glass-plate photographs from the Spanish-American War, after the rare find was rediscovered this year."

There are eleven pictures total at the link, a mixture of ships in action, crew on board, etc.

@Drew P:
You're welcome! They're going into my reference collection as well, both my Steampunk and U.S. History folders.

@J. Wilhelm:
Yeah, we've kinda got a soft spot for Teddy here in Texas, especially after he did the recruiting for his Rough Riders in San Antonio.

Incidentally, I played Teddy Brewster from Arsenic & Old Lace on stage. He's the brother who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt. The "charge up San Juan Hill" (the stairs) is an audience favorite (and he does it two or three times during the show).

He also digs "locks" for the "Panama Canal" in the basement...which the aunts used to bury the bodies of their gentlemen callers. (When he asks the aunts about the bodies, they tell him they've died of malaria!)
