  1. An amazing collection. That first one is stunningly haunting or hauntingly stunning–not sure which.

    The John Topham photo looks an awful lot like the one by Herbert Mason (see http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic-art/79855/145130/), which made it to the front page of the Daily Mail. Was Mason not the only photographer who shot from this vantage point? Did Topham work for another newspaper?
