Vintage photography

I’m going to hunt the internets for more site soon, but I thought I’d give a holler to the vintage photo sites that occupy my spare time at work (and, right now, during breakfast).

One of my favorites and the most varied, Swapatorium: A Journey Through Junkland,  is sadly temporarily closed.  Angelica, my best wishes to you and your family.

Shorpy’s is always nice, and the layout and navigation are easy. I really like their focus on workers and the real feeling of a past era, and their contextual blurbs.  This is my latest fav, although there are so many.

Square America I tend to forget about, and then I’m always wow-ed when I go back.  They focus on a bit later time period than the others I look at, and have more color.

I’m not quite sure how I feel about these vintage postcards of New York City, but they’re at least interesting.
