Brooklyn Eagle

Does this look like "one" photo to you? It is not!

It's a montage of two photos designed to look like a single shot. Does it? ...

  

It avails not, neither time or place—distance avails not;

I am with you, you men and women of a generation, or ever so many generations hence;

I project myself—also I return—I am with you, and know how it is.

 

- Walt Whitman, from his poem "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry", which probably appeared in Whitman's 19th century newspaper, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle

  

I don't know that any eagle has been spotted in this location in more than 200 years. Interestingly, also, early 20th century Brooklyn's major newspaper was

The Brooklyn Eagle.
