To see a series of interesting, completely random objects from the past, look no further than the Detroit News Archivist. This series of high-quality images taken from the late 1800s to the 1990s contains more black-and-white eye candy than you’re likely to find on any website. It is presented completely randomly, with little in the way of curation, but that makes it more fun to browse through. Here are some pics/picks:
