For those who caught the flu this winter, you have my sympathy. But things were clearly a lot worse in the "good old days".

This 65 foot high monument marks the site of a large Army camp, where soldiers were assembled before being shipped to France during the First World War. Apparently in 1918, prior to shipping the troops overseas, a flu pandemic broke out, killing 563 men and women while stationed at the camp.

nostalgia tag.....

While we wait for the new tag, thought I'd mention ThisFlatEarth's recent work on PC's list. Now, it is pretty easy to look up the old tag pictures. He's added the URLs to most of the tags that still have photos up. Here's one of the best from over 4 years ago. The largest lightbulb in the world! Gotten, of course, by the founder, Sallydog!
