April A-Z, Historical Photographs, Letters K through M

This month we’re participating in the April A-Z blogging challenge. Never fear, our regularly scheduled podcast episodes will still release every other Thursday. In between those episodes, enjoy some historical photographs themed to the letter of the day. This page will be updated each day until we run through our letters for this batch, then we’ll start a new page with new letters. I hope this brings some new history resources to light for you!

K is for Kite

Nope, that’s not a UFO, it’s a tetrahedral kite and that guy way far in the right is Alexander Graham Bell. He didn’t just do the telephone. Learn more about Alexander Graham Bell and aviation here.

L is for Laboratory

Eek! I missed a day, but I am making up for it with both L and M this morning.

So that’s high school chemistry in the 1890s. Looks much fancier than my high school was.

M is for Mail

Today is Tax Day in the U.S., but I’m sure we’ve all turned everything in already, right?

Well, if you haven’t, be sure to submit your return electronically or visit someone like this guy by the end of the day.
