    FlickR member BeautyofthePast posted this photo in January
    showing three fellas she termed "alpinists" posing after topping
    a rocky crag. She had nothing on the date or location. My
    WAG is that they're Americans or Canadians somewhere in
    the Rockies, roughly about 1915. Anybody else know or want
    to venture an estimate? :confused: Cool photo!

    Horseshoe Falls, as photographed from the standpoint of a Canadian
    photographer. This is another image captured by a process called
    Photochrome (apparently properly "Photochrom Zürich") and was
    posted on FlickR by member JosefNovak33 whose post of the Swiss
    Alps was posted here a few days ago. This HAS to be pretty early,
    judging from the fairly pristine state of the woods in the background!
    ANYBODY wanna venture a date or range? This Photochrome is ob-
    viously hand-tinted and is mounted on cardboard, apparently a com-
    mon practice "back in the day." My wife and I have these among the
    keepsakes handed down by our ancestors. I need to look this process
    up, as the term is new to me.

    Beautiful glass-plate image of Lake Balaton, Hungary, at sunset, taken some time
    between 1900 and 1910, according to FlickR member Elinor04 whose grandfather
    was the actual phtographer! This and the several other natural shots I posted here
    recently are from an impressive FlickR series called simply "Antique Photographs
    of Nature." Thanks, Elinor!
