Some Spinoffs

These are two compilations of images that turned up when I was looking for maps and that I then felt strangely compelled to compile in tumblr form. The trains in towns are all courtesy of an amazing collection of birds' eye views of American cities from the turn of the century featured on Big Map Blog. The Bergen County Beards come from a collection of late 19th century local histories of random American counties digitized by the British Library.
