I have a thing for some of the older photo images, especially some of the ones that were shot for the FSA and other government agencies during the depression era. Lewis Hine, Dorthea Lange, that sort.

Shorpy.com is digging these up and runnning them as a weblog, and at the same time, offering prints. I’ve spent a bit of time in the last few weeks poking around — of course there’s Hine’s Powerhouse Mechanic, but there are a few from Dorthea Lange that I find quite powerful.
