Description James Otis, Jr. was a lawyer in colonial Massachusetts, a member of the Massachusetts Legislature, and an early advocate of the political views that led to the American Revolution. The phrase 'Taxation without Representation is Tyranny' is usually attributed to him. He was born in Barnstable, Massachusetts. After the death of his parents, James Otis, Sr. and Mary Allyne, his uncle and aunt as well as his godparents, adopted him. He was the second of thirteen children and the first to survive infancy. His young adoptive cousin Mercy Otis Warren, his brother Joseph Otis, and his youngest brother Samuel Allyne Otis also rose to prominence, as did his nephew Harrison Gray Otis. - Wikipedia.

Richard Eslinger, Farmington Hills, Michigan Member Since January 2011 Artist Statement Hello, I'm Richard Eslinger, the creator of this Imagekind gallery.
For most of my career I worked as an engineer and computer graphics specialist. In more recent years, I discovered a hobby of searching archival sources for historic, interesting, or important vintage images. I refurbish them with graphics software and imprint them on stone, tile, wood, paper, or glass in various ways. This has led to the presentation of some interesting artwork. Some of the results of this hobby can be seen on this Imagekind gallery as well as my website https://www.vintage-imaging.com.
I also work in a trophy and awards business, Great Lakes Trophies and Engraving (GLTE) in Garden City, Michigan. You can visit us at www.greatlakestrophies.com to see some of the items we make and sell. I program and operate our engraving machines for trophies and recognition awards. We have 5 engraving machines including 3 laser engravers and 2 mechanical engravers. Programming and running them is an art in its own right and requires an artistic view and use of computer graphics software.
I live in Farmington Hills, Michigan with my wife, Karen. Thank you for visitingmy Imagekind gallery. To view more historical images, visit my website at https://www.vintage-imaging.com
