A large part of my fascination with history is the ability to see it. Old photos are a very important part of that visual aspect of history as they give you a window to see into another time. As such, I’ve collected quite a few old photos which I’ve decided to share part of here at the bottom of History Rhymes.

I’ve uploaded over a hundred photos from my collection and they are selected to be displayed at random. The photos come from a number of sources, but they are primarily photos I’ve come across some place or another on the internet and liked.

I am always on the search for more photos, so if you would like to share some of your historic photos with me, just send me an email!
