Yes, the images are amazingly crisp given the technology of the time. You can even see the personalities of the sailors.

Great post!

Fantastic! I've already copied a few for my Urban and Regional Planning course next fall. Love the old urban pix.

Glad everyone seems to be enjoying them as much as I am.

Sure is good to see pipe smoking represented as much as it is in a bunch of the pics.
