870,000 images of New York City and its municipal operations are being made available to the public on the Internet for the first time, The Associated Press reports.
The photos, some of which date back to the mid-1800s, come from the city's Municipal Archives collection, and they feature all manner of city oversight - from stately ports and bridges to grisly gangland killings.
Ah, some more interesting photographs, these were taken before Israel was a state, There were a group of dedicated Christians from the last half of the 19th century until about 1941, who supported the Jewish idea of returning to Israel. While many of these people in especially England were not even Dispensationalists, q.v., Dispensations, e.g. Charles Spurgeon, they did think Jews would return to their land, and this is one reason we have so many pictures of the pre-state Israel, Life of the Jews of Palestine the import excerpt from that article being,
Lenny Ben-David wrote: The Library of Congress has recently digitalized a collection of over 10,000 photographs, taken by the "American Colony" in Jerusalem, a group of Christian utopians who lived in Jerusalem between 1881 and the 1940s. The photographers returned to the US, and bequeathed their massive collection to the Library of Congress in 1978. The collection includes Winston Churchill's visit to Jerusalem, Jewish expulsions from the Old City during Arab riots, and the building of Tel Aviv.
John, notice the name of the site? But no sometimes even SA may want to turn a mildly curious eye to the secular world. You notice I did mention it, and even gave it something a religious perspective, which is fine --by me--anyway.
As far as pictures are concerned about this tragedy, there is absolutely not shortage of them. The building is still being used, by NYU, I think I saw somewhere. Wikipedia has even good pictures of it, which are too graphic, I think, Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire. I see there was celebration or at least an acknowledgement of the 100th anniversary of the event.
Perhaps, these pictures will encourage the return of the use of caps and hats?
Hitchcock Dictionary wrote: HEAD-DRESS: Not in common use among the Hebrews. It is first mentioned in Ex. 28:40 (A.V., "bonnets;" R.V., "head-tires"). It was used especially for purposes of ornament (Job 29:14; Isa. 3:23; 62:3). The Hebrew word here used, _tsaniph_, properly means a turban, folds of linen wound round the head. The Hebrew word _peer_, used in Isa. 61:3, there rendered "beauty" (A.V.) and "garland" (R.V.), is a head-dress or turban worn by females (Isa. 3: 20, "bonnets"), priests (Ex. 39:28), a bridegroom (Isa. 61:10, "ornament;" R.V., "garland"). Ezek. 16:10 and Jonah 2:5 are to be understood of the turban wrapped round the head. The Hebrew _shebisim_ (Isa. 3:18), in the Authorized Version rendered "cauls," and marg. "networks," denotes probably a kind of netted head-dress. The "horn" (Heb. keren) mentioned in 1 Sam. 2:1 is the head-dress called by the Druses of Mount Lebanon the tantura.
