A world of images...

Do you remember a time when professionals were basically the only ones taking really good pictures? This was probably because real photography involved specials bulbs, dark spaces, and smelly chemicals. Well, Time Magazine in conjunction with Google has released a new library of millions of photographs from 1750 to today. I've been combing through them today and finding some really cool scenes. 97 percent of the images have never been seen by the public. Pretty amazing.

This image is from a dance at a Oklahoma City High School in 1946. Pretty cool.

Look up your own history here.
