Amazing and rare historical photos #3

Here are some more rare, historical photos to entertain you as you isolate yourself at home during this horrific pandemic.  I hope they will provide a distraction for you so that you can get your mind off all the sad news.  I found these photos fascinating and I hope you do too.

This is the third of four sets of rare historical photos on Number 16.  I will be posting  the fourth and final installment of photos tomorrow.
