check out this fantastical website SHORPY.
it's filled with old-timey pictures from back in the good ol' days when pants cost 75¢ or whatever.
here's a picture of a traffic cop in the year 1918, the year my grandmother was born and today happens to be her birthday...
super interesting and sometimes beautiful to look at, but also a major time suck.
get your history on.
(nice sentence, me)
