Thanks Peter. Maybe If I have time I will go through some of the other photos there. All I know is that I'd be peeing myself if I was in the Brooklyn Bridge picture.

Great photos .

The guys hanging from the bridge look so comfortable in their suits!  Great work attire.

I could spend/waste all day looking at them  (OK:  spend, looking at beauty is never a waste of time)

OK...scary, weird, uncanny moment here!!  I was just on that site YESTERDAY looking at these exact same pics and almost posted a link to it here in the forum.  Now I'm glad I didn't, because I hadn't realized that Peter already had.  Awesome!

These pics are amazing, and I'm with Mac.  I could spend all day looking at them.  I was also looking at Lawrence, KS; San Francisco, CA; and Chicago, IL.  Very cool pics.  There was another link I found that showed NYC in roughly 10-year intervals during the 1800's.  Again, very cool.  Here you go...

Beautiful!    I especially love this one http://sunnycv.com/steve/maps/1800s/1871DC.jpg  with the very unlikely perspective and the beautiful style and colors, but they're all cool  :)
