We went back to the future…
now let’s go back to the past with shorpy.com This constantly updated blog has everything from glass plates to kodachrome, and includes both photographical and historical notes for most of it’s entries. My favorites are the 4x5 Kodachrome gallery, and the large collection of Lewis Hine’s photographs.
