Includes articles from Harper's Weekly

Links to useful sites- everything from costume-making to cemetaries

A true alternative subculture is one that not only questions the social status quo but poses viable solutions to some of the perceived underlying problems. Difference from the norm is not the same as superiority to the mainstream unless it can be  argued that the difference is positing a better way.

Project Gutenberg has  tons of copies of Punch magazine from that period as well..
They are under V for Various,  a bit ahead of Verne  Wink

Thanks.  Yesterday I picked up a reprint of Harper's Weekly; I was at the New-York Historical Society (sic) which was having an exhibit on blacks in New York during the Civil War. The particular issue I bought was on New York's Civil War Draft Riots in July 1863.

It's interesting reading some of these things because it makes one wonder how we will be seen by our own descendants.  I was happy that Harper's condemned the rioters and didn't engage in race-baiting for the most part.

I just discovered that my university has issues of Century, Science, and other periodicals as far back as the 1880--and in actual, original paper too!  I'm in heaven!  They are filled with glorious illustrations that I will have to scan and share when I get some free time Wink

"'s a form of fiction, and as such, while there may be times when it's considered a worthy vehicle for pointing out some of society and individual flaws - I still want a side that will let there be lighthearted adventures in the clouds, on mars, or under the sea."
