I for one am very thankful! That's a neat site you linked to.

I love looking at old photos of people. There are the ones that seem so far removed from our time b/c of hairstyle or dress, and then there are the ones that are just timeless. Like the one you had in your post. He has such a 'modern' expression on his face! I also like the one of Sakamoto Ryoma sitting on a bench for the same reason.

The pic of Nakaoka Shintaro is quite shocking! He's smiling!! Shocked

You might also be interested in these pics. These are some scans from books that were for sale on Ebay. I didn't buy them, but I did save all his preview scans Wink

Great sites! I've glanced at both, but I can see I will have to peruse them later when I have more time. Thanks!

No, really. What on earth are these guys, especially that one sitting in the middle, thinking about? And look at that guy behind him, with a hand on his shoulder. There is a story there...

So, reply and give your caption for this photo! Cookies for the best one! (plus it's a great excuse to add to your posts and get closer to your own avatar!)

The first site made my day, thanks!
Old photos are really fascinating.

Btw, the 3rd link doesn't work now. Is the site down?

Oda Nobuyoshi is certainly good-looking in a rock star kind of way, but I prefer the Shinsengumi vice-commander Higakata Toshizo.

Though he is not in the top 10 so to speak, I've always thought Mori Arinori, the diplomat and Minister of Education in Meiji was good looking.

I need more time to look at all these photos. Thanks for sharing!
