High Res History: Time Travel through Photos

Emily Robinson, an Intepreter at President Lincoln’s Cottage, recently ran across this fun photo blog that showcases a wealth of high resolution 19th and early 20th century photos of DC, including an extensive number of Civil War photos sourced from various places.  http://www.shorpy.com
Here are a couple of her favorite images:
