I think I mentioned this before, but if you enjoy vintage photos and some real “living history” please take a look at the Library of Congress’s Flickr feed. They have photos from the 1910s and the 30s and 40s. The images of everyday people are amazing. I believe this is the cornerstone laying for Columbia University’s Butler Library. (A 1911 photo of my alma mater’s crew team can be found here.)
