Semi-OT: Some pics (WW1 and older)

Recommended Posts

Photos found inside an old French army 3D camera: http://io9.com/rare-3d-camera-found-containing-photos-from-wwi-669397198


And for fun, since I know we have a lot of history buffs in general, I found these neat pictures of Napoleonic war veterans posing in uniform. I'd sure hate to have gone toe to toe with 1000 Old Guard soldiers back in the day: http://www.armchairgeneral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=72496

Not sure about these Napoleonic pictures. They might be veterans wearing their uniforms several years later. Waterloo was 1815, and that is too early for such photographs to exist. I'm not a photography buff, but I thought it was the mid 19th century before photography anything like this was established. I'm guessing these pics must be at least 25 to 30 years after Waterloo, which in fairness explains the advanced age of the soldiers.

Still very cool pictures I forgot to say...
