    U.S.S. Galena, via New York Historical Society. The original captions reads, "Iron-clad Gunboat 'Galena,' Showing the effect of Rebel shot," which of course is a joke, since there's no damage visible in the image.

    Darn it! My grandsons had a pair of those red/blue spectacles they used to use to look at a dinosaur book. Thinking they were never used anymore I threw them out last week. :stomp:

    They're available from lots of sources and often inexpensive.

    The Central Pacific Railroad’s 4-4-0 locomotive Success was built by Rogers in April 1869, and probably went into service with the CPRR shortly after completion of the first transcontinental railroad the following month. Success is seen here on Front Street in Sacramento. Image found online.

    Several of these buildings still stand today, and the locomotive is shown at the platform of what is now the California State Railroad Museum.

    Children at Catharpin Run at Sudley Springs Ford, Virginia, with seven Federal cavalrymen across the creek, March 1862. New York Historical Society. Original image by George Barnard.

    John Hennessey has written on this image, noting that

    suffice to say that it’s virtually certain that these are the four children of John and Martha Thornberry, who lived just up the hill from the ford. Their ages and gender match what we know about the Thornberry family, and there was no other collection of offspring that matched in the Sudley Area: Samuel was 12 in 1860; his brother Joseph, 7, stands next to him; that’s likely toddler Annetta with her hand on her forehead, and at the left is Laura, 5. Laura would later in life write a brief memoir about her family’s experience during the war.

    Last spring blogger John Banks visited the site with Hennessey, and managed a then-and-now image.

    Here is the anaglyph based on the LoC negative plates of this image:
