    Does it follow that I reject all authority? Perish the thought. In the matter of boots, I defer to the authority of the boot-maker.

    Very impressive find, Groakes!

    Those are beautiful pictures!

    They really transport me to the time and place!

      Fantastic looking pictures! I wonder how many of the bridges and buildings are still standing?
      You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

            I've seen these before, but they never cease to amaze. The fact that color photos were an absolute rarity in that era somehow makes the colors more vibrant than real life.
