I am, for all intents and purposes, done posting to this blog. I don’t have the time to truly dedicate myself to finding quality images full time but  I will continue to post royalty related images when I run across them on my history blog: http://indypendenthistory.tumblr.com/ . 

Thank you for all of your support over the past year! I have enjoyed our chats!
