    US Navy reveals glass plate photos from the late 1880's

    Some amazingly good looking images in this collection. I love it when things like this get found and published: http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/...graphs-n100686

    The full 40 odd images are here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/navalh...57644224605974

    The photographers of this period were the pioneers to whom I think we owe a lot of respect. The chemicals, the exposures, size of the cameras and glass plates must have been a logistical nightmare for transporting their craft.

    Indeed. It almost makes snapping away with a digital camera seem like cheating.
