It is a wonderful site with a new post every day: always something visual, always poignant or funny, beautiful or alarming and always very personal and intimate that speaks to us from another time.
It contains images as epoch-defining as the first ever photographic image of a human, and the earliest known photographic self-portrait, to images showing the erection of Nelson's Column and film showing those few years when cars shared road space with horses. There are many very personal stories too, such as this photographic record of a couple's life through 45 years of marriage (starting in 1900).
This article fits in with those that touch on a Retronautic aesthetic (there is such a thing... see Steam Punk.).
