    Post your favorite old time photos here. Keep them classy kids! They run a nice joint around here and we want to keep it that way! All photos before 1980 count as vintage. Please give credits to the photographers or links/attribution to the website whenever possible.

    I'll start with a recently re-found female street photographer Vivian Maier. http://www.vivianmaier.com/

    I just found this site http://www.vintag.es/

    They have labels for a lot of years. Some of the photos are gorgeous. Some of my favorites.

    These are just from the 1800's

    THE 1800'S I don't know why that's so exciting to me.

    Yes! Because that means it's even more real!

    I don't know why, but yeah.

    Libraries have the best online resources! Definitely check out ones in your area for local photo history too.

    Other places to lose time:

    http://www.loc.gov/pictures/
    http://images.google.com/hosted/life
    http://www.magnumphotos.com/

    Another silly one. Photographer unknown.

    I hadn't been going to bother reposting this (shared it on MTG last summer), but since now there's a thread for vintage photos anyway, I just love this wacky shoe-testing contraption...

    Neat piece of manufacturing history, for testing shoes:

    (enlarge)

    An article from a 1930s magazine about this and many more testing contraptions for other types of products:

    Torture Tests Tell The Truth: Ingenious Machines in the National Bureau of Standards help bring to light unknown facts about peas, pants, pots and paints.
