    In the late 1800s and early 1900s, naturalist and taxidermist Carl Akeley led a series of expeditions to Africa to collect specimens for the Field Museum. The Chicago-based institution has collected a number of extraordinary photographs from those trips—including many glass lantern slides that were colored by hand.

    This sunken dynamite boat—the British steamer Chatham—was on its way to Japan. According to a 1905 New York Times article, the ship had caught on fire on September 6 and was purposefully sunk; on September 28, mines in the ship's hull were detonated by an electric current 5 miles away, obliterating the ship and its 90 tons of dynamite.

    Where are the Reggies?
    It's no wonder that they complain about not getting more roles in film.

    Probably could have shown modern pics. Not all that much has changed.

    That's a terrible thing to say! Clearly the historical pictures are MUCH better looking.
