At the library there are a vast abundance of books on virtually every historic event you can imagine. Some events have volumes of books that do a good job chronicling important milestones in the human condition. But none does a better job than a photograph. The beauty of an old picture is that it acts like a time machine of sorts, transporting you into that time and place unlike any words can possibly do. This post contains photographs dating back over a century. Many capture moments that you may not have read about in any book but it’s hard not to examine each photo for a few minutes, trying to absorb every small detail of yesteryear.
