Have you ever wanted to be able to look into the past? Well now you can! This site provides historical pictures from all over the globe! It seems I’ve been sharing this site with everyone I know! I sent it to my family members and my history professors at school, and we all agree this is one neat site!

Along the bottom the page you’ll see a strip of the most popular photos on the site. While I was visiting, there was a photo of Blackrock Castle, in Cork, Ireland. It was absolutely gorgeous, so I click on it to make it larger. On the photo’s page not only do you get to see the image larger, but they also provide you with a Google map to the left of it that shows exactly where the subject matter of the photo is from! If you click the photo again, you’ll be able to see it even larger. And at the bottom of the page there will be a strip of related photos that you can check out.

Back on the main page, if you don’t want to check out the photo strip at the bottom, then you can type in the location you’re looking for and you can change the dates the photos are from as well. For example if you want to see one of my favorite pictures on the whole site type in: The Sphinx, Apostle Islands, Lake Superior, U.S. Then click the Find Pictures button.

The search will bring up two images (at least it did when I searched it) choose the one that matches the title exactly. For me, that is the first image. The image is of a rock formation in Lake Superior that looks like the Sphinx. I think it strikes a cord in me because it is like cloud watching. You decide what shape it takes, I can certainly see the Sphinx like shape of it, but I can also see a battleship, a seagull perched on a rock out cropping, and that’s a just a few.

This is an amazing database of pictures! Not only can you see images here, you can share images! I’m hoping I can talk my grandparents into sharing some of their photos of Pennsylvania from the early 1930’s.

In order to leave comments, or share photographs, you’ll need to register. Don’t worry it is super easy! Just fill out the form, make sure you provide a real e-mail address so that you can get the confirmation e-mail, and click Sign Up! Now you can share your photos, and help add to the collection.

This is an awesome site; share it with your friends and family today!
