You are invited to stay and browse through my stream. Here’s a quick index 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 (except Springfield): Central Illinois (except 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.

MESSRS. JEFFERIES AND STUBBS RYLSTONEBY BRITISH STONE SALLY STONE. The teeth from canine to canine, includingthe six front teeth, should be in a straightline. See that the ears are very small and thin,and the eyes set well apart. The puppyhaving these properties, together with adomed, peaked, or cocoanut shapedskull, is the one which, in nine cases out often, will eventually make the best headeddog of the litter. The breeding of Bulldogs requires un-limited patience, as success is very diffi-cult to attain. The breeder who can rearfive out of every ten puppies born may beconsidered fortunate. It is frequently foundin what appears to be a healthy lot ofpuppies that some of them begin to whineand whimper towards the end of the firstday, and in such cases the writers experi-ence is that there will be a speedy burial. It may be that the cause is due to someacidity of the milk, but in such a case onewould expect that similar difficulty wouldbe experienced with the remainder of the litter,
