By now it's probably pretty clear that I love pictures like this.I was actually reading a book this morning that is very similar, but pictures of China from 1880-1912 and it's got much crazier shit than this (decapitation?). There should be more sites dedicated to the digital preservation of images like this, of typical daily life from 100+ years ago.
Daguerreotype preservation!
Anyway, I wouldn't recommend visiting the site these photos are tagged with at work (the url above is fine), since it's almost entirely Russian text and boobs.
