30 Inch Monitor, 100 Year Old Photographs

One of the unfortunate aspects of owning a 30″ monitor is that, aside from thedude.com, there are very few web sites that post images at a resolution any wear near full-screen size. And, if you’re like me, you bought that 30″ monitor because you like images, right? There’s nothing quite like a super sharp image on a nice 30″ monitor. So, when I want to see the best of the best, where do I go? To shorpy.com, of course. The meticulous scans of old 8 x 10 images are custom-made for us large screen users. I check in often, and am always blown away. Check it out!

    Yes, there are some grainy images, but there’s nothing quite like these old images. I love them! I’m actually printing a series of four to go on the wall near the server room. 🙂 1. 2. 3. 4. Retro high tech!

    Did you notice the spitoon on the floor in image #4?

    Indeed I did. I guess it was a standard accessory for phone rooms of the past. 🙂

    Yes! I think I’ll add one to my server room. 🙂
