My fascination with vernacular photography is generally known to readers of this blog [if not, see Nova Scotia Faces and Squidoo on Vernacular Photography], but perhaps you won’t yet be acquainted with Shorpy the 100-year-old photo blog, where things are really being done RIGHT, including images by Lewis Hine, Walker Evans, Andreas Feininger, various WPA photographers, and not-so-famous people too.
