Words and pictures about the weird and wonderful technology that changed our lives in the past. Just because it isn't Web 3.14 doesn't mean that it wasn't neat, fabulous, and the focus of a million technogeek fankids.

A Circular Russian Ironclad (fl. 1876)
From a German periodical of the 1870's, and found in the current listings of eBay seller marderll. You'll note the similarity to the Monitor, and unique Russian touches. The Cheesebox on a Raft is now a Cheesebox on a pie-plate.
