The Lively Morgue

The above images are scans from the backsides of photographs in the New York Times’ photo archive posted on their new photo blog titled The Lively Morgue. Printed, stamped, and scribbled on the rear of the photos are records of publishing dates, captions, and other internal notes. The blog does post the front of the photograph incase you were wondering, but I found the backsides equally interesting as the life of the image within the Times can be traced through these notes. A full explanation of the backside notes can be found on the bottom of this page of the blog.
