Rare Historical Photos

Like most modellers, I’m always looking for new ideas for vignettes and dioramas, and I recently came across the following site. Rare historical photos – the facade of Mussolini’s Fascist HQ, a partly-built Eiffel Tower, London in the Blitz, or a beautiful air-to-air shot of FW190s – offer interesting glimpses into lives and events that otherwise would be lost forever.
