Back after a brief hiatus, I was doing some research tonight at the LOC Prints & Photographs Reading Room and I’m constantly amazed at the amounts of photographs coming online.  As seen in the example above, there are just thousands upon thousands of photographs that are useful in researching early 20th Century history. 

Let’s say for example you’re researching tank production in World War II.  By going to the Reading Room and typing in a quick word search on almost any variant of tank, tanks, etc, you will soon find thousands of resource photographs like in the image below:

I’m just amazed at the amount of resources available on almost every topic under the sun!  If you haven’t had a chance to visit the site in a while, you really should give it a whirl…lots of neat stuff!
