@DavidXJ: Yup! The difference was mostly the switch from "muzzle loaders" to modern artillery guns. And from sail to steam (of course).

100 Ton Gun One of the largest muzzle loaders ever built. Around 1875.
Fort Rinella, Malta Built just for one!

The advancement of battleships from 1862 to 1898 is absolutely astounding.

It all looks romantic, but the reality is
Labor day is usually HOT
Suit and tie
No air conditioning
No deodorant!

Women don`t shave.... anything

Many are utterly amazing!~ The fine details of those "old time" pictures is great!

Looking at what was "normal" 100 years ago reminds us to be humble! The things we think are important? Might be forgotten by next century.

Hint: Look at the `swimsuit` pictures...

@Gerry1: Lots of Sailors for you in this collection! ;-)

Thanks @Jake_Justice! There are a few photo collections in my IAB Resume, eh?

One Of My Favorites

Great post, 5Cats. Can` get enough of these.

But are you sure that photo of the "1896 U.S.S. New York Group of Sailors" isn`t actually a poster of a late 19th-century Boy Band? They`ve got the poses down. Expressions, too.
