  1. >> I didn't realize they had decent underwater cameras in 1939

    The lady is underwater, but the camera isn't. It's looking through a window.

  2. I’m really amazed with your posting skills as well as with the layout on your blog site. Is this a paid style or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the pleasant quality writing, it is rare to see a great site such as this one these days.I recently came to know about, their Man and Van Battersea are very effective.
