Here’s to hoping that the weekend means you can take time for some lazing, relaxing reading!  Here are my top 3 favourite articles from the week:

1) If you love studying World War One or naval history: World War I in Photos: The War at Sea by Alan Taylor via The Atlantic

2) A look at the history behind 19th century and early 20th century ‘casket photos’: The Double Casket of Thomas & Mary Souder via Dr. Lindsey Fitzharris’ blog The Surgeon’s Apprentice.

3) I’m a year late reading this article, but it’s a great look at art history: I was the Chinese Girl in Tretchikoff’s painting via BBC News Magazine

Bonus) For anyone that knows, lives with or is a teacher, this article will hit home: My wife is a lazy liar by Ron D. Smith via his blog smithdeville.com.
