Old Stuff

This is you 100 years ago

" is a photo Blog about what life a hundred years ago was like: How people looked and what they did for a living, back when not having a job usually meant not eating. We're starting with a collection of photographs taken in the early 1900s by Lewis Wickes Hine as part of a decade-long field survey for the National Child Labor Committee. One of his subjects, a young coal miner named Shorpy Higginbotham, is the site's namesake."

(It's also a Blog with RSS)
