Old Photographs

I came across some old photographs of the SF earthquake on, Haighteration and then since NY is on my mind I found old photographs on HUH. I thought the photos were pretty cool and started looking into other archives of old photos. I came across a site called Old S.F. that is pretty amazing. It’s an interactive map of SF where you can adjust the years (1850 – 2000) to show locations that have photographs from all different years. It’s worth checking out.
