I don't see any All About Commodore Perry thread, so I figure it's about time to start one. Obviously, there are a ton of things to be said about Perry, but, though it's surely an odd place to start, I just wanted to share a few pictures I took earlier this week at the New York Historical Society. As I meandered through the Society's displays, I just so happened to notice Perry's name engraved on a silver platter.

Kind of random, but, interesting, no?







My photos of monuments to Perry in Tokyo, Naha, and Newport RI can be found here.
