Hope she lived.
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.

A bit long (for today's audience?) but "the past is a foreign country". :mrgreen:

Nope, probably my own post. The page just didn't want to load, with that message in my browser. Today everything's OK.

Painters Of The Brooklyn Bridge,1914.
Most of the pictures were taken by anonymous municipal workers in the course of their duties, although there are some standout pieces by professionals like Eugene de Salignac, the Boston-born descendant of French nobility who at the age of 42 became the official photographer for the Department of Bridges/Plant and Structures in 1906. The department’s only photographer, over the next three decades he took 20,000 pictures of Manhattan’s most famous landmarks as they went up. He retired in 1934 and died in 1943, a virtual unknown, until in 1999 Municipal Archives photographer Michael Lorenzini recognized that a number of outstanding photographs had to be the work of one man. Lorenzini dug through the archives and historical records and finally put a name to the prodigious talent, bringing de Salignac out of obscurity into museum exhibits and coffee table books.
