This may have been covered here but I seen this and thought I would share. I didnt see it when I searched. Maybe there are some who have not seen it.

Thanks, that link must be new, it has sure made the rounds the last week or so.

As an aside, the camera he used is in The Nebraska State Historical Society, John's late great nephew was a friend and I learned a lot about historical pictures from him, I miss him, I still wish I could call him at times.  Don donated the camera and I attented a lecture he did on Uncle John back about 2000.

I found another site that has some of  John C.H Grabill's pictures.  Some the same, some different.

Yeah, I seen that link on another forum I go on.  ;D

I like the pics in the link you provided also. I just love looking at old pictures from many moons ago.
