#NationalPhotographyMonth continues! Here’s a neat photo of students Bunt Schrimscher and Pixie Mayes during carnival day at the Cherokee Female Seminary, Tahlequah, I.T. This was taken about 1900 by their fellow student and #Cherokee photographer Jennie Ross Cobb. Would you like to try a fun activity with your kids? #NationalGeographic has instructions here on how to make a pinhole camera: These were the forerunners of the type of camera used by Cobb and her contemporaries. 📸

#thisdayinhistory On April 19, 1995, at 9:02 a.m. a 4,800-pound ammonium nitrate–fuel oil bomb exploded in a Ryder truck parked at the north entrance of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City, killing 168 people and injuring approximately 850. At the time, the bombing was the nation’s worst single act of domestic terrorism. The governor’s office reported that 30 children were orphaned, 219 children lost at least one parent, 462 people were left homeless, and 7,000 people lost their workplace. The City of Oklahoma City’s Final Report estimated property damage to more than 300 buildings in a 48-square-block area.
