1904. "Avenue C -- Miami, Fla." Renamed First Avenue after the city's brief fling with lettered streets.
Palm Beach circa 1901. "A glimpse of the Royal Poinciana." An entrance to Henry Flagler's immense resort hotel, back when Florida was starting to be a thing.
This motley crew includes two of my uncles on the far right. The photo was taken by my father about 1960 in Leatherwood, Tennessee, in Hickman County.
New Orleans circa 1880s-1890s. "Street in the French Quarter." Take care not to trip on the guttersnipes. 5x7 glass negative by William Henry Jackson.
June 1943. "Arlington, Virginia. Girls in two of the long line of showers at Idaho Hall, Arlington Farms, suburban Washington residence for women who work in the U.S. government for the duration of the war."
1864. "Civil War R.R. operations, bridges and equipment -- Railway Bridge across Platt Creek (vicinity of Knoxville, Tenn.)"
New Orleans circa 1925. "View of a courtyard." Evidently the rear entrance to Club Firestone. Note the zigzag extension of the downspout under the patio flags.
1906. "Birmingham, Alabama -- Jefferson County Courthouse and St. Paul's Church."
Midafternoon in the Garden of Good and Evil.
Circa 1901. "Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, Georgia."
1931. "Brandon, James River, Prince George County, Virginia. Built ca. 1730 by Nathaniel Harrison II and for two centuries the home of the Harrison family. The central block connecting the two older wings is supposed to have been designed by Thomas Jefferson in 1789 upon his return from France."
