Beautiful Find - Retronaut

Hello Readers,

I want to share an amazing website I stumbled across called Retronaut. 

Retronaut is a photographic database of images dating throughout history curated and presented on a website which is run by a team of 5 individuals.

The pictures are categorized chronologically, according to subject matter and according to popularity.  Some collections include a contextual write up providing further insight. 

As a lover of antiques, photography and history, I was fascinated by the extensive collection of photographs and the range in subject matter available on the website. 

Here are a few of my favourite photos:
 
This is especially interesting, as I visited this site in December.





Retronaut's contribution to historical documentation is commendable.  Having received positive testimonials from the likes of BBC, there is no doubt as to the credibility and quality of the site and its content.

Beware!  Retronaut is a time trap.  You might lose track of time, losing yourself in another time.
