      Golden Gate Bridge - opening day. 1937. I love the documentary about this bridge. Apparently it's one of the most sought out places to commit suicide in the world. Very sad. Pay It Forward... When crossing a bridge that charges a toll... pay for the person behind u as well. (Trying to make our world a nicer place) - Documentary/Photo Journalism Photography

    Charles Earl Bowles (b. 1829; d.after 1888), better known as Black Bart, was an English-born American Old West outlaw noted for the poetic messages he left behind after two of his robberies. Called Charley by his friends, he was also known as Charles Bolton, C.E. Bolton and Black Bart the Poet. Considered a gentleman bandit, he was one of the most notorious stagecoach robbers to operate in and around Northern California and southern Oregon during the 1870s and 1880s.

    Bill Tilghman was one of the most famous Lawmen of the Old West, but he didn't start out that way, as in his early days he was arrested for theft, but he was appointed city Marshal of Dodge, in 1884 and wore a badge made of two $20 gold pieces. Tilghman was involved in the capture of Jennie "Little Britches" Stevens, and Cattle Annie McDougal near Pawnee Oklahoma in 1894.
