I have always enjoyed looking at old Beekeeping photos. Does anyone have any interesting old pictures?

And while this is not from the thread linked above, it would seem to qualify ... :lpf:

Here's a vintage smoker of mine. It has a nice patina, and tire tracks.

Dig around online and you may find pictures of bee hives that got shot up in the battle of Gettysburg.
Photography was fairly new at that time so I suspect that'd be the oldest pictures of bee hives (that I have ever seen).
Scroll down to "Saturday September 14"
The third photo down clearly shows overturned bee hives.

Try and ignore all the gruesome pictures. Sorry but It's what I found.

Great page Joe! The clips from "the Swarm" are hilarious. Also enjoyed the Lassie episode.

Sorry, I couldn't resist. I heard the sound of a modem in the back of my head and almost had a seizure.

Thanks Flash,
I recently have been researching magic lantern slides of beekeeping. Will be posting them, as I research.
