shorpy

just discovered this incredible online vintage photo archive. named after Shorpy Higginbotham, a teenage coal miner from the late 1800s, the site features landscapes, portraits and candid photos from the 1850s to 1950s. the bulk of the collection is in black and white, with the occasional pop of muted color from the 1940s and 50s. prepare to settle in; this site is a goldmine.
