Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Time Travel

Visiting the Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC allows for some time travel.  The portraits put faces to the famous names in US history before there was photography.

Here's a selection.














Thomas Edison



Samuel Morse

So many famous names there. Good to be able to put a face to the name.

...Marcia, what a great collection of portraits of famous people. An artist with a brush was the forerunner of the photographer, it's nice to see these works. I never thought about what Isaac Singer would have looked like, but sure is a picture that would come to mind. Thanks for sharing, please stop back again.
