Century old photos

Shorpy.com is a blog with a novel purpose: to showcase high quality photographs that are more than 100 years old. It seems like a neat way of engaging with both the medium and history in general. Some of the recent images are also quite striking, such as this shot of clerks with adding machines.

Author: Milan

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.
