One of my favorite follows on Twitter is an account that claims they are “sharing the most powerful and entertaining historical photographs ever taken.”
History In Pictures is a collection of photographs from the 20th & 21st centuries of people, places & things documenting big historical moments & celebrities & candid shots from across the world. With a focus on New York City, I compiled their historical timeline of shots from the epicenter of the tourism world, Times Square. From the construction of 1 Times Square in 1903 (pictured below) through last year’s NYE celebration (above) you can see how much the area has changed over the last 110 years or so.
