Shorpy is a great site for viewing vintage photos. If you want a real sense of history visit this blog often. I love studying the faces of the many individuals who have passed from this life into the next. (see if you can spot two special people in the photo above)
Thanks for the heads up on an interesting site. I see Corky.ReplyDelete
Look carefully and you will discover an agitated Arminian who must have stumbled on the secret of time travel as well.Delete
Looks like Corky's got those three fellas engaged in some serious conversation! Thanks for the cool link :)ReplyDelete
It seems that everywhere Corky shows up, people ask about his Romans 9 grenade costume.Delete
I like the warning on SHORPY's header:ReplyDelete
"May Contain Nuts"
I see Nigel. I assume Corky's costume is cane-proof.ReplyDelete
Corky's costume is not only cane-proof, it's also cane-resistant! By that, I mean the costume has a force that tends to oppose or retard motion from someone using a cane as a weapon.Delete
Corky! Look out behind you!ReplyDelete
Jim, you know you are shouting at a digital copy of a 1909 photograph...but, in this case, it just might work.Delete
