comment Gold Confiscation Act of 1933
BTW, my browser (Firefox 12.0) crashed when I visited the home page of that gold eagle site. Do you think they could pack in any more ads there? The linked page seems safe though.

comment What was the world population around 970 BC? Does it fit the biblical narrative?
The world population estimates of the time period would suggest that an adult male population of 800K in Palestine is a plausible number. That said, numbers in the Bible have been mistranslated at times so that's why I'd suggest the hermeneutics site to probe that aspect.

If you're looking for a Biblical interpretation you might want to try this StackExchange site instead: hermeneutics.stackexchange.com

comment When Did Commerical Studio Photography Become Common?
@MichaelF - That's an interesting thought, did limners move from sketching to photography, adapting to technological change? I'll have to look at that angle too.

@T.E.D. - I'm also looking for ads from that time period selling photography as a business opportunity, aka selling shovels to miners. I'm mainly looking at it from a perspective of an invention creating a small business boomlet.

comment When Did Commerical Studio Photography Become Common?
I was looking for the commercial revolution more than the technical one. I'm trying to figure out if there was sort of a "Jeff Bezos" of photography in that time period, someone who took the inventions and commercialized/popularized their use without being a technical innovator themselves. I'll edit the question to make it clearer.

comment Did any of the 50 Destroyers swapped for bases with Great Britain in 1940 sink any Axis military vessels?
The Wikipedia link you provided has links to each ship's battle history. I glanced through a few and found that most had engaged U-boats and torpedo boats (aka E-boats).
