In case you are bored at a Sunday afternoon and if you like old photos, I can recommend the Flickr photostream of The Library of Congress’. This huge stream contains thousands of pictures from old newspapers but also includes great photo series from the war years in color! My previous post was about the B-25 Mitchell, I found in the archive a really a wonderful selection of pictures from the factory .. Who will say whether the famous Dutch b-25 Duke of Brabant Air Force is in one of these pictures.
