Default History Porn

A few days ago NASA released a bunch of high definition photographs taken during the Apollo program in the 60s and early 70s. Project Apollo Archive | Flickr - Photo Sharing!




Today, Yale University has put up 170,000 photos from the Great Depression for public consumption. Photogrammar
