Photographs from the Chicago Daily News, 1902-1933. Stumbled upon whilst looking for historical info on 1933, this Library of Congress-hosted site provides access to "over 55,000 images of urban life captured on glass plate negatives" by the photographers of the Daily News. memory.loc.gov simply never disappoints.

Awesome. I'm browsing their portraits of Native Americans before moving on to the other topics. Thanks, this is a great find.

Wow - the Updike murder plot. Herbert and Irving plot to murder their wealthy parents, one of the brothers has a secret bride, a "caberet singer".
