TG for the internet, bookmarks, and for people who wrote stuff down!
One cool discovery from Larry this week is a list (with pics) of Past and Present Minnesota Railroad Stations by county. Morrison has 10 pictures, and I think we can add to their set with pics we found in the Morrison Co Atlases.
See if you can discover an inaccuracy there...☺
Another is this website about George Lawrence, who took pictures with a camera rigged on kites. He took a few photos of St Cloud in 1900 or so. Most are here on the Library of Congress website, along with 260+ other historic aerial pics he took.

Lessee, what else? OH, this site where Larry found the original plat map of the village of Buckman, and the names of the residents who wanted to incorporate it. I intend to transcribe what John Schmolke wrote here, so check back, ok?
A cool sidelight Larry discovered on this plat map is the name of the artist who copied it, one George Harting:
