The lively morgue

A brilliant new site. The famous New York Times have opened up their archives of news photographs and are publishing these treasures on a tumblr site they call The lively morgue. What makes these shots even more interesting that by clicking the images, you can see the original back side including notes as well. I picked as an illustration a photograph dating back to April 28, 1948: a pile of visitors' hats in the lobby of the White House. Photograph by George Tames/The New York Times.
