Cheap wall art from the Library of Congress

Did you know that the Library of Congress has a Flickr account? Yep. It does.
You can find thousands of old photos dating back to the 1800's, and the best thing is, you have the option to order prints. Some of them are high resolution, but for the most part, expect to find one you like as a 5x5". A print that size will set you back about 99 cents. Holy cow, right?

I'm thinking these would look lovely clustered together among a few drawings and hung in mix-matched frames. Don't you think?






Last night Kurt ordered this one:


Wolcott, Marion Post, 1910-, photographer. Cabins imitating the Indian teepee for tourists along highway south of Bardstown, Kentucky. 1940 July. Notes: Photo shows Wigwam Village #2, Cave City, KY.

Hmm. Looks familiar ...
That's because we were there. See?
