Text Appearing Before Image:
thful, affectionate dog, that comes far awaydown the road and welcomes our return to the home,what of his ancestry 1 Our intelligent horse, that knows our footstep audneighs a signal of friendly recognition when we approach,what of his nativity ? The friendly puss, that purrs away a contented andhapp3 existence on the sofa near us, whither did it ctnne ? The multiplied breeds of horses ; the numerous kindsof cattle, sheep and swine ; the wide variety of dogs, cov-ering the range from the minute black-and-tan to thestrong St. Bernard ; the indefinite number of fowls, fromthe tiny bantam to the stately cochin ; the many varietiesof pigeons, from the pretty tumbler and the proud fan-tail to the fulM)rcasted pouter and the swift-flying car-rier; the brilliantly colored pcac<ick, the graceful swan.the sweet singing canary—animals and birds we seearoumi us each day, yet of which we know but little—what of them? To answer these questions are given the sketches on llifsucceeding pages.

Photographed at the 2010 Hot Rod Power Tour stopover in Springfield, Illinois on June 6, 2010.
You are invited to stay and browse through my stream. Here’s a quick introduction to my little corner of Flickr:
Automobile Photographs: This is a very large collection of images whose primary, but not exclusive, focus is on American automotive classics. Images are organized by decade, by manufacturer, and by topics (such as convertibles, station wagons, muscle cars, etc.)
Central Illinois (excluding Springfield): Photos relating to the middle section of the "Land of Lincoln" (except for the Capital City of Springfield) may be found in this collection. Every city and town I’ve photographed is contained within its own set, and rural (as in "countryside") photographs are grouped by county.
Springfield, Illinois: All of my photographs of Springfield and the Abraham Lincoln Sites are in this collection. For the City of Springfield, there are separate sets for the Capitol Complex, Downtown (including the Old State Capitol), Neighborhoods, Parks, Illinois State Fairgrounds and more. Photographs of Lincoln sites include the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, Lincoln Home National Historic Site, Lincoln Tomb, and so on. Also in the Lincoln "All About Abe" (Set) are a few Lincoln sites not located in Springfield.
The Illinois State Fair: My collection of photographs of the Illinois State Fair. The fair offers something for everyone. Grab a corn dog and lemon shake-up, and come take a look!
Beyond Central Illinois: Other locales in the United States and Canada including New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle.
In addition to my location-based sets, here are links to some "topical" collections and sets I’ve put together:
Barbers & Barber Shops: Traditional barbers and barber shops are on the endangered species list. But there are still plenty to be found if you go looking for them.
Almost Everything Else. Check It Out!!!: Included topics range from man’s first walk on the moon to small town schools and churches, and from Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers (our favorite breed) to things that are abandoned, neglected, weathered, or rusty.
