The Retronaut is an interesting site, a veritable miscellany of an archive with no particular theme other than “That’s interesting – let’s see more where they came from” that I can see.
But that’s what a good archive site should be – an eclectic mix, where you have no idea of what is coming next.
Its founder, Chris Wild, is obviously a man with a passion for letting the site do the talking.
The images range from (mainly) the 20th century onwards and cover a huge area of topics and themes. Be warned that it’s one of those sites that you can happily spend hours on, all in the name of ‘research’.
Take a look and see if you agree.
