1. I love Retronaut

I got an e-mail from them today saying they were changing the site. Retronaut will be more for unexpected happenings caught in old photos, and a new site is being created for more general old photos.

My fav is wetcanvas.com

2. shorpy.com

Be sure to read the story of Shorpy Higginbotham, for whom the site was named.
