Shorpy is an historic photography blog that posts high resolution historic photographs, many of which are from the files of the Library of Congress. The site is named after a young coal miner named Shorpy Higginbotham. Shorpy users can also upload their own historic photographs. I enjoy old photography, but more importantly I enjoy seeing familiar places as they once were. I was able to find many photographs of my home town, Kansas City, and enjoyed seeing well-known streets as they were well before my time.
