Field Museum on Flickr

My favorite museum from childhood is on Flickr.

John B. Abbott excavating dinosaur femur
This one is supposedly of Antarctosaurus, a titanosaur sauropod, but the notes indicate that this was taken on an expedition for Cenozoic fossils. A happy accident?

Apatosaurus (Brontosaurus) skeleton

Here's a "brontosaurus" in construction in 1907.

There have been plenty of brief posts like this lately, which I'm not thrilled about, but I've started taking a french class and working seriously on my graphic design portfolio, so I have a bit less time to do the kind of research I usually like to do for LITC. But I do have some recent dinosaur papers that I'm reading to see if there's anything I feel up to sharing. And I'll be posting an interview soon, plus I've continued to find great vintage dinosaur art. So I'm not going anywhere. I just won't be pontificating over my head quite so much...
