vintage national geographic

If you're the kind of person who loses themselves down digital rabbit holes and scrolls so far back on blogs that you start to get thumb cramps, this treasure trove of vintage National Geographic snaps will do absolutely nothing for your productivity.

It is, however, another excellent way to wile away the hours on the World Wide Web. Each photo has appeared on the pages of the mag at one point or another, with some even dating back to the 1800s – when the camera was just a newfangled contraption dreamt up by a dapper fella known as Daguerre. Peek through pics of old-time fashion, folks, historical occasions and natural wonders over here.
