Historic Photos

Thanks to Mark at Depth Reporting, who directed me to Picture History, a site featuring historic and some of the most memorable photos of the past 150 years.

You can browse the site's collections or use its search option. The site also offers a "Featured Image of the Day."

If you're a history buff like me, you can definitely lose yourself here. My favorite offerings are the photos taken by famed photographer Mathew Brady and the photos dealing with the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, including an aerial view of the president's funeral procession on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C.
