Shorpy, History In HD

I came across a blog that I fell madly in love with. As you can tell by the title, it's high-resolution photographs from up to 100 years ago. The photos are amazing, and they tell amazing stories. Here are a couple of my favorites... please check this blog out. It even gives you the option to buy any of the photos as fine art prints. Awesome work.

June 1942. "Queens, New York. Children get milk or tomato juice after their nap at the nursery school at Queensbridge housing project."

October 1941. "Grand Central Terminal, New York City." Medium format nitrate negative by John Collier for the Office of War Information.
