Old Photographs & Western Settlers

I was messing around with old photo’s from SwittersB to create a small collage. I went looking for more and came across an old box of black and white photo’s that took me way back to being  a young boy.

I have always enjoyed the transport back in time, especially looking at photographs of settlers in the U.S. I certainly imagine anyone enjoys the same nostalgia ride regardless of their locale around the world.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
