    Color me skeptical. And sad that Will Dunniway is following in Patrick Alt's footsteps getting into "authenticating" images of questionable provenance.

    Well, I wish him luck on making his fortune.

    Personally, this excites me whether it's authentic or not. I love history, and especially historical photographs.
