Great Bears Picture – Image from page 44 of “Seeds, bulbs, shrubs : catalogue 1914” (1914)

Featured Flickr Bears Pic

Here’s a little something outside the norm, every now and then I’m going to show you guys a random image from Flickr that is tagged with “Chicago Bears”. I think it’s a great way to show off other people’s creativity, whether that is photography, painting, drawing, or some other kind of flickr-applicable art.

I just think it might be a fun way to be a unique Chicago Bears Blog

Hope you Bears Fanatics like it!
