Armor plate from USS Texas (1892) at the Illinois state fair in Springfield, sometime between September 17 to 25, 1915.
Tumblr media
I have not been able to find out what happened to this armor plate after the fair. Most likely it was scrapped.

A US Navy dive bomber just after dropping its payload on a bridge across the Yalu River between North Korea and China, 1950.

I have a question for all the Naval Historians out there but how did sailors in the age of sail keep their hair clean? In the portrayals in media of the time like the cartoons and caricatures they have mega long hair and massive sideburns. I need to know.

Students: Compare & contrast past and present pandemic guidance. Should the CDC advise the following?
- Avoid wet feet! - Stay away from Boston! - Boil or destroy your handkerchief after sneezing! - Keep regular hours! - Watch out for "coughers" and "sneezers"! - NO spitting! - Have back pain? Go home!
Most importantly, even if tempted, DO NOT EXPECTORATE PROMISCUOUSLY!!!
