We Need Help


Nobody's getting paid for this, and we've volunteered our time and travel—and the webhosting costs. If you're the MacArthur Foundation or the Pew Charitable Trust, please send us mail.

If you're on a smaller budget, but you want to help a little bit, you can send money by using the PayPal donation box here.

Page Images and Pictures

We work hard to find, scan, photograph, and process (in Photoshop) magazine and book page images for our files. We can't do it all ourselves. If you collect old magazines and/or travel history materials, would like to help us find more good material to share with the world write us. We can use scans you already have, or make scans or digital photographs. We'll be happy to give you a copy of the scan, and (depending on the resolution) a hard-copy print of the image. And we'll give you credit in our gallery of Friends, if you want it.


Our Underwriters

Our advertisers help us defray the costs of running this site.

You'll also find Google ads tucked in discreetly at the bottom of many of our pages. In general they advertise things that will be interesting to you if you are interested in the page you're reading. When you click through on one of these ads, we get a few (very few) cents. Click away!
