Visiting my daughter, we decided to take a tour of the Museum of Monterey. It celebrates the the culture of Monterey from when the Spanish came through the days of it being a fishing and military capital:

1800's Sicilian Cart
Chalks and chains used by the ships
ca.1846 USMC hat and Uniform coat
Hotel Del Monte menu's-1926
Inside the museum
Spanish military helmet-1600's
Spanish military helmet-1400-1500's
Ceremonial dress-1930's
MFPU Banner
Diving helmet
1925 H.M.S Rooney
Part of Monterey Sardine industry

I thought the museum was really cool. I learned a lot about the history of Monterey and the area.

  5. Whoa! You've done it again my friend! Totally blew me away with these photos and a Sicilian cart too boot! That's where my family is originally from. Palermo, Sicily well, my mom's side of the family is. How about that & it's pretty darn colorful after all these years. Totally awesome! Thanks for sharing.
