"High quality photos from 100 years ago"


St. Augustine, US
          

I recently became aware of a website called Shorpy.com, which showcases exceptionally sharp images from the earlier days of photography. I wasn't aware that cameras back then had the ability to generate such detail, but then along came Photoshop. I am not a Photoshop expert, and I would be interested in seeing what others opinions are on the ability to digitally generate such clarity.

Regardless, many of these images are a fascinating insight to life 100+ years ago.

I think its great. Thanks for the link, very fascinating. If you thought film archives from the past do not contain high resolution detail I invite you to see the Blu-ray HD version (restoration) of the film "The Wizard of Oz", circa 1939. It is outstanding.
