Shorpy shot of the day

I would like to kick off a new segment for this blog called the 'Shorpy shot of the day'! Shorpy is a online resource where (once you have signed up for a FREE account) you can upload old photos to share with its large web based community. Of particular interest to everyone are photos from the 1900's to 1940's and after spending a good few hours cruising through the site I am here to tell you there is plenty to see.

Two of my particular faves above are from the colorized section and are titled "Mr magazine, 1908' and 'Stars and stripes 1915' My my how times have changed! I hope you enjoy this little nod to the past as much as i have and stay tuned for regular Shorpy shots of the day... or if you simply cant wait head here to check the rest out yourself.
