Love looking at these pics Steely.

How about some old school military field kitchens tomorrow? (Only if request are taken of course) I would post my own, but currently surfing from the phone for the next few weeks.

Dig the Monarch block the WW1 cooks are using. Both Michigan Maple Block and Boos are still making those nearly 100 years later. ;)

USS Maine, a second-class battleship built between 1888 and 1895, was sent to Havana in January 1898 to protect American interests during the long-standing revolt of the Cubans against the Spanish government. In the evening of 15 February 1898, Maine sank when her forward gunpowder magazines exploded. Nearly three-quarters of the battleship's crew died as a result of the explosion. This was one of the catalyst for the Spanish - American war.

So, in the cooking class pic-
is the nurse there in case one of these guys severs a limb?
That pic is totally worthy of a caption contest.
Love the Vitamin Donuts too.
Honestly, my kids already get enough "Pep and Vigor" from the regular kind of donuts!

The Comacchio Valleys are a paradise of water, made up of canals which are the destination of keen birdwatchers. But at the beginning of the twentieth century, this territory of lagoons and marshes was a hostile place where malaria reigned sovereign and men survived only due to their fishing and eel conservation and processing abilities. The eels became the symbol of Comacchio, and in the Delta Park, fishing is still carried out with the traditional ‘lavoriero’ method, a sort of large arrow point on the surface of the water which blocks the exit mouths of the valleys. A couple of years ago, the ancient Manifattura dei Marinati was reopened, where the eels are cooked in the huge fireplaces, just like they were over a century ago.

Thank you for kind words .
I just need to build up the base of data and image's
instead of posting every day .
I hate to repeat things unless someone ask ,like to keep it fresh.
I will go back to the roots of Historical finds and the post from some items and catalog pages that were lost.
it just won't be everyday .

Cheers
Steeley

Way to go out with class steeley!
I'm going to try and keep this thread alive as much as possible. It won't be photo of the day, maybe of the week, or whenever I can get around to it.
I'll miss it steeley.
This has been a bright spot for me every day. Something that cheers me up, no matter what.
It's time for other KKF'ers to step up and keep this going!
Hot chix, knives and history.......

I just 'discovered' this thread. Went through all 30 pages in one sitting. Wow Steeley! Standing ovation from me in appreciation! I can understand your pulling back to research and to keep the quality up but I have to say I can't wait to see more from you and from others as well. What a great idea! Thanks all!
