Map of the world Circa 1700 A.D.

Neat map.

Reinder, Elk, Moose, Buffalo, and other wildlife is interesting to look at.

The introduction of Sheep, Pigs, Goats, and Cattle may result in devolution.

The location and approximate date of the domestication of goats, pigs, sheeps and cattles. Years in BCE.

I grew up in  town about 130 miles northwest of St Louis, where there is a park based on the mounds built there by those who preceeded us EuroAmericans.  The name of the park is "Indian Mounds" park.  I dont think the site is preserved as a pristine archeological site - it's a park.  However, it shows that the mound building societies were not just in the area of the map.

Map of the Day: Starting around A.D. 800, many agricultural communities sprang up along the Mississippi and in other fertile river valleys across the Southeast and Midwest. Though Cahokia became by far the largest, other settlements had similar features.

Remembering the seafarers who defied the fascist blockade of Spanish ports

JIM JUMP tells the story of British seafarers who traded with Republican Spain during the Spanish Civil War

NEXT month sees the unveiling in Glasgow of a memorial to British seafarers who braved fascist bombs and U-boats – and the British government’s appeasement of Franco, Hitler and Mussolini – to trade with Republican Spain during the Spanish Civil War

Thanks must go to rail and maritime union RMT and its Glasgow Shipping Branch for raising the money for a memorial to the crews of British ships who risked and in some cases gave their lives to break Franco’s blockade of Spanish Republican ports. Designed by sculptor Frank Casey, the memorial will stand proudly across the Clyde from Arthur Dooley’s landmark Pasionaria memorial to the more than 500 Scots of the International Brigades.

Colourizing doesn't always work but when it does it can bring the subjects back to life in a really meaningful way. 

Comment by Mrs.B on February 10, 2019 at 3:09pm

Such a lot of work, but I'm sure it would have made the movie more realistic in appearance. Yes, our world does have colour so I've never understood the need for the black & whites.

Comment by Daniel W on February 10, 2019 at 9:52am

I don't have photoshop but there are some online colorizing apps.  So far they seem quite limited.  They produce a sprt of "color washed".  Here is a photo from on-line that I processed using a colorizing app.

Before

After I wanted to colorize some images from 1800s and early 1900s from family albums, but not sure yet that I like the results. Here is one of those. It was very faded and very small. I ran it through Picasa photo editing program to enlarge and up the contrast, then a colorizing app. The app does not attempt True color" but rather adds color based on what it perceives as skin, or sky, or grass etc.  This was taken roughly 1895, my grandfather's siblings.  The boy died shortly after the photo, childhood disease.
