    Two men and the Old Man stage horizontal angle sights
    From: David C

    Two unidentified men looking through sextants 1924 - 1926. The Old Man (?) looks on. They are taking horizontal sights but I suspect that the image is staged.

    On this web site it used to be possible (by following an obscure link) to download the hi-res version. Unfortunately this function seems to have been removed.  I have therefore zoomed in to one of the men and made a screen grab. Zooming in and looking at their worn clothes and weatherbeaten skin is fascinating.

    For the hi-res version go to
