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.
