The Lively Morgue from The New York Times

There’s a photo collection that only one particular Old Grey Lady could put together. It’s called “the morgue” at The New York Times, and with over 10 million total frames archived, their photo library represents the entire visual history of the paper dating back to 1896. Some of this rich history is being repurposed in the NYT blog, The Lively Morgue, on which they publish several images each week from the vast collection. Each post includes a description of the image, when it was published, and a view of the backside of the photograph which yields loads of interesting tidbits. For photographers and history buffs, it’s a worthy addition to your bookmark bar or Tumblr feed.
