Historic Photography Archive

Old is just an amazing resource of historical photography. Pictures from the advent of photography until about the early 40's from all over the world. Lots of cool classics like Matthew Brady and Edward Curtis, and a bunch of other stuff as well. A wonder look at the world when places really had a since of place.
Fantastic resource for Steampunks, Dieselpunks, artists, photographers, and just about anybody who loves 'em some eyecandy.
Above is a classic portrait of Buffalo Bill Cody.

We have compiled a collection of thousands of the most important photographs of the last 150 years; pictures of our struggles, trials, and triumphs. We can only fully understand our history by gazing into the eyes of the people that made that history. Their eyes will tell a story that no words can.
