Shorpy, the 100-Year-Old Photo Blog

If you like history, especially history since the Civil War--the kind of cultural, nostalgic history that can be captured in photographs--check out Shorpy. Members post wonderful pictures from all over the country, like this one.

The caption reads:
October 1942. "Office employee Annette del Sur publicizing salvage campaign in yard of Douglas Aircraft Company, Long Beach, California. The earrings and hair ornaments are fashioned from aluminum turnings." View full size. 4x5 Kodachrome transparency by Alfred Palmer for the Office of War Information.

On Shorpy, you can search through categories like Kids, Civil War, Factories, etc. You can even sign up to have links to the best new photos emailed to you once a day.
