    16th century Morsus aka Walrus... or what was it?

    Perhaps, there are many animals now extinct. One book that is archived in the digital collection has many of the creatures we note now in myths: Griffins, Jackalopes (horned Rabbits), fucky hippos, and Unicorns. Link: - NYPL Digital Collections Just peruse through it - some have human...

    Airship over destroyed 1906 San Francisco

    Copied an 1896 San Francisco Newspaper Sketch from the The Awakening/ discussion board. This sketch depiction is from eyewitnesses that stated they saw the airship over Sacramento. It looks similar to the picture above - wonder if the airship was vacationing over the skies for a decade or so??

    The Lost History of the Flat Earth

    What is old is new again - interesting if you re-read the Past History Book of Enoch (Which never made it into the Bible- I guess Enoch was a flat Earther too ;). ) A few "clips" - Chapter 18 notes. 18:2. I surveyed the stone which supports the corners of the earth. (My Note - I did not think...

    TV Show | Sweet Tooth

    Unfortunately, if the Centaurs disappeared, most likely, any hybrids that maybe introduced (like BigFoot) will be prime as a target in someone's trophy room. Contests will be devised for bringing in the "first" mutant and the hunt will be on. Things in History don't change much.:rolleyes:

    The Wrath of Gods: GeoWeapons vs natural Mud Flood

    Now I am wondering just how much of the areas that had mud flood problems were built up on Man-Made cover over swamp areas, dry river beds etc. Caught this note in one of my searches for the Chicago Columbian Exposition (new field museum) and the writer writes:

    19th century sci-fi airships: could they fly?

    I am not sure they could fly, but the people then were very much obsessed by then - even in advertising:

    1906: Seattle Central Library. Demolished in 1957.

    I think the time frame to determine mud flooding is getting smaller. Now between 1900 and 1905. I was researching some silverplate antiques and was lead to a archived 1900 magazine that sported a NEW manufacturing jewelry Building for "S. O. Bigney in Attleboro, Mass." Jewelers' Circular and...

    1892 Pioneer Building in Seattle: how and when was it built?

    Okay, I will go off the subject of the "City" here and add a segment of the Starting of a book titled "America" by Hendrik Van Loon (1933), I find it interesting that he classifies the "Modern Era" beginning 1769. More interesting in one chapter (one page at that) is that he fails...

    San Francisco: 1906 vs. 1907, 1908 and 1909

    I think in the film clip above a notation stated that it was Taken May 1906, when the damage occurred in April. However, in older postcards pics, it looks like the amount of damage done was centered in residential areas and not in the center of the town (those buildings that were made to last -...

    1915: Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco

    At least there was a descent food court - hard to image that the building could be built only a year or two before when the earthquake/flood of 1906 destroyed most of the SF City.
