Vintage photos of:
November 11, 1938. "No doubt armies were discussed when this picture was made today. Maj. General Malin Craig, U.S. Army Chief of Staff, and Col. Fulgencio Batista, Cuba's Dictator, as they chatted informally at Arlington while waiting for the arrival of President Roosevelt for the Armistice Day ceremonies there."

New York, 1909. "Political museums, Union Square." Two dueling exhibits, one mounted by the Committee of 100 against the Tammany Hall political machine, and the other a counter-exhibit staged by Tammany partisans. The particulars here are enough to make your eyes glaze over, although I was happy to see that someone fixed a misplaced apostrophe in the banner on the right. 8x10 glass negative, George Grantham Bain Collection.
