What a wonderful post John. I think your presentations and ruminations o FSA photographer archives are a treat.

The first image with the right-angle viewfinder is great and the two images (painting and photograph) of Church at Pleasant Unity, Westmoreland County are lots of fun.

Thanks v much.

The FSA collection is wonderful. The availability of this sort of online photo archive (there are many) is changing the way that we do photo history.

Photography's past is much more accessible to historians than ever before. And, just as importantly, what historians have to say is much more accessible to readers.
