    <DD class=date>1927 <DT class=description>Description: <DD class=description>This is a photograph of the lawn in front of the annex to the State House shortly after the flood. The height of the water is indicated on the trees by the difference in the color of the bark. The rings around the trees are not the high water marks. The high water mark being about 4 feet higher than the rings. </DD>

    YellerSpirit, MrFire and edubya, who SAYS that history isn't fun, huh?:D You guys have
    posted some fantastic shots in just the last 10 pages that capture and encapsulate the
    progress, energy, hard times and hopes of several decades of humanity.:cool: It's been a
    real treat for the eyes and mind, and I have so many favorites, I can't but scratch the
    surface. What a great nostalgia/historical thread Twin6 started, and folks like you give
    it an ongoing life. THANKS for the many hours that you spend searching for such great
    material. ;)

    The hand-tinting really adds a dimension to this vintage pic!

    The love affair with the Great Outdoors was not far behind the love affair with the automobile!
    Love the early camping shots!

    The pix of the huge variety of activities at the '39/'40 NY World's Fair are a real treat.

    I never tire of seeing the great Art Deco creations of the '20s and '30s:cool: --
    from the likes of Loewy's Streamliner, to Reiner's "Speed," to Bourke's
    stylized-eagle cornice for the Chrysler Building. From the emotionally ef-
    fusive '20s through the long, dark years of the depression, it seems to me
    that Art Deco as a form was a consistent element and reminder that hope
    for the future was ever present in the mind and spirit, and, concomitantly,
    that bringing these to bear could produce better technologies and quality
    of life. To ponder these images is an invitation to get lost in thought.:rolleyes:
    Great pix, folks!
