1838: Lingering

 

1838: Lingering

MDCCCXXXVIII

                    Pictures tell the stories

Paris: earliest known photograph of a recognizable human form taken by Louis Daguerre

                    Appearance is important 

The fellow was having his boots shined 

                    Exercise

London in February: pedestrian walks backward 20 miles, then forward, in 8 hours

                    Save a penny for a rainy day

New Orleans: mint opens, making dimes

                    Notice the beauty in the everyday world

London: National Gallery opens

                    Appreciate freedom

Frederick Douglass, disguised as sailor, escapes slavery

                    Think things through 

England: Silkstone Mining Disaster – floods drown 26 children

                    Pray for others
