New Old Stock brings you vintage photographs from public archives that are free of known copyright restrictions.
Setup as a Tumblr, you can browse easily just by scrolling down the page. You’ll find a mix of old photographs, advertisements, space photos, and more.
I could get lost for hours looking a the images on this site, I really love the ones that are snapshots of everyday life. Pictures of old shops, farms, workers, and such. The old advertisments are also really interesting to look at. What colors did they use when it was printed? How has the techniques the create them changed? Are questions that came to mind. I also really love the space images!
I felt really inspired after a looking at these images to work on my own research for my thesis project. But not until I sent my mom some pictures of cows I found on the site.
I think you’ll really love looking through these old photos, because I sure did! Go check them out!
