Life in Old Photos

One unexpected side effect of the Web has been the wide array of websites dedicated to vernacular photos. Found photo blogs abound, but some are far more interesting than others - the eye and humor of the collector has a large influence on these sites.

One of the best ones that I've just recently discovered is bighappyfunhouse - a daily treat with often very poignant found photos, dug up from a seemingly endless pile of great pictures. The site owner, Ron Slattery, adds great, thoughtful commentary that often adds another dimension to the photos on display. Make sure not to miss the alt tags (roll your mouse over the pictures).
