"This photo was taken on March 12, 1910"?

I used Nikon's new #Century Retroactive Filter . It works great!!

Excellent! Maybe I should turn away from all that digital camera fluff too, and return to the analog ways instead.

Heh, Corax, maybe I should go back in time, when even industrial landscapes were beautiful.

In case you missed the irony, I didn't take this one. It's from the amazing photo repository of the Library of the US Congress. I just put the image here because I was going to blog about it.

It may happen again, so if you find a photo in the 'Ignore Me' album it's because I didn't take it -- most unfortunately.

Honestly no, I didn't get the irony – I was too impressed how well you seemed to have captured the spirit of the early 1900s to notice the sailing ships were real sailing ships, and I didn't bother viewing the full-sized image as, sadly, many if not most 23ers disallow viewing their precious compositions in full glory. So the more praise to your noble, broad-minded generosity (I mean it!), and I shall be sure to pay more attention to details, especially with "your" images ;)

On the other hand, I wasn't too far off with my 1910 guess then – the source states c.1903 :)

Precisely! Are these old photographs astonishingly beautiful or are they!
