I did visit the web site of the George Eastman House. Particularly interesting to me was the online collection of US Civil War photographs.

That reminded me that In Focus also had a three part collection of US Civil War photographs. One Two Three

Which, in turn, reminded me of In Focus' helpful and informative monthly summaries of photo essays. This is the first one in February, 2011; each of them contain a link to the Next Month.

Sorry to do this in two parts...
Hi Del,

Thanks for your note. I'm a very long time subscriber to The Atlantic Magazine. Recently they started an online series of collections I thought might be of interest to you; you may already know of it. It's called In Focus. It's a series of photo essays on various topics, some somewhat off beat. Here are a few of them:

The American West 150 Years Ago
Earthquake in Northern Italy
Views From the Night Sky: London and the UK
75 Years Since the Hindenburg Disaster

If you wish you can subscribe to a email notice telling you when new photo essays come out from In Focus.

Hello Del,

I have an LT habit of going to the book page of more unusual books that I acquire and seeing who else has the book, what their interests might be and what books they own. Occasionally it leads to something interesting. I checked on the Vivian Maier: Street Photographer book this morning and there you were.

When I started working many moons ago, the first serious thing I bought, after buying a car to get to work, was a Kodak III c (how old am I?) which I dearly loved and blew through many, many rolls of Kodachrome.* Years later I got interested in older photographic processes and looked into them. Unfortunately, they just don't seem practical without having a lab type setting available and the chemicals are a bit nerve wracking.

All this is a long way of saying that you have a terrific group of photography related books and I've added you to my non-trad favorite libraries links.

Have a great spring day,

* Apparently too few rolls to keep Kodak financially solvent through 2012.
