Photographs, the Past, and Making Ends Meat

17 Apr

Our photographic history of Orange City is out and in town. Our project, although completed, has increased my interest in images of time and place. (Whether I will get involved with another photographic history, though, remains to be seen [pardon the pun]. For previous posts related to photography, click here.)

Apropos photographic history is a post by Barbara Orbach Natanson at the Library of Congress about some pictures of a meat boycott in the U.S. in 1910, such as this one:

Crowd gathered in front of butcher shop during meat riot, New York
