I refuse to honor Columbus Day, as I have for decades. So in celebration of Indigenous Peoples' Day, here's a lovely portrait of a Zuni War Chief from Timothy H. O'Sullivan, primary stereographer on the Wheeler Expeditions.
My wife and I took an extended trip to Strasburg to ride behind the 611 - the last remaining Norfolk and Western J-Class locomotive. Then we spent three days antiquing in the Lancaster County area. To see some of my finds, read on...
After enough requests for more pretty ladies on Brooklyn Stereography, I must assent - so here are some mediocre cheesecake stereoviews from Stanley Long. I present VistaScreen Series 40 "Glamour Models No. 2 - A bevy of British Beauties", an obvious series of outtakes from the first Glamour Models series.

I have a few hours to kill on my birthday before my wife gets home. So what better way than by posting a Top 10 list of stereoviews that have previously been posted on this blog?
Sunday Travels is back - with a ridiculous look at Australia, courtesy of KVC. The only thing more common than kangaroos in this set of stereoviews is stereotyping - at which Keystone excelled. Some come aboard, and see all the excitement of 'roos, sheep, and a really big rock!
