Whoah. Any info on that?

In case of lack of information, random speculation is also good.

Wow!
I tried looking into this, and the best I can come up with is a little French town called Saint Malo or maybe Alteh.

There's a good web site on it here. Which is where I found this old picture of a different pillbox in the area.

Seems these pillboxes sit on top of bunkers, so whoever was inside could have climbed down a ladder and run out the back of the hillside when the first few shells were glancing off the sides and weren't hitting directly yet.

As much as they cost, they damn well better come back!

The woman on the right is my great grandmother. She lived in Brooklyn, so this would have been just a little ferry trip for her. She was born in 1872. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated in 1886. I'm going to guess this was taken in the mid 1890s, since she looks to me like she's in her 20's. Hard to tell if that's a wedding ring on her finger.

My cousin took this digital picture of a glass plate image. The image is reversed, since that's how the glass plates came out. I'm not that familiar with the early photo technology. Is this a daguerreotype?

Anyway, I think it's pretty cool. She's from the side of the family that had some money back then and that could do things like dress up nice and get a portrait taken. Nice hat.

I like how they're looking down, the camera near the ground to fit everything in. I'm none too expert on these photos either, does it look real or does it look just a little like they might be posing next to a picture of the statue rather than the real thing?

And look at all those aircraft (alien spaceships?) flying around everywhere!

My first thought when I saw this was that it was fake. A studio backdrop. But that grass in the foreground is real, and so is the packed dirt at the foot of the bench they are sitting on. And she lived in NYC, just a few miles from the real statue.

But still...
