antique images[edit]

Why are all the images in this article a century or more old? The most recent seems to be the one from 1914 in the infobox. It's very strange, as if the city no longer actually exists and the only evidence of it is a bunch of very old, faded postcards.

Does no one in Jamestown own a camera? Is the city so unattractive now that no one wants the rest of the world to know how it looks? Jamestown's residents seem to be very fond of it, so why no current images of it? What it looks like now is more important than how it looked 100 or more years ago. A few antique images would be okay, but not all.

It's not too unusual to find small articles with no images about relatively obscure places, but this is a relatively large article with a substantial number of images—all very old. "... 'twas strange, 'twas passing strange ..."--Jim10701 (talk) 20:20, 25 December 2012 (UTC)

Natalie Merchant?[edit]

Nothing against her, but is she really on the same level as the others in that sentence?
