Loved Burnett's observation about the utility of a big ol' Speed Graphic as a device for clearing a way through a crowd, if it comes down to that. Nice pictures, too.

Brilliant post - the photo gallery is astounding.

(If you have time to drift through them one by one full size, rather than cherry picking thumbnails, his talent becomes quite overwhelming.)
