Prokudin-Gorskii Photo Collection
Click image to visit the archive or here.
The images in the archive were taken by Prokudin-Gorskii using a camera of his own design, with a RGB photography technique, taken between 1909-1915.
The archive is pretty vast with 2606 images, the colours produced are great too, as with a lot of photography I like the inconsistencies and misalignments that produce the super vibrant colours. The high resolution versions are available too at a giant 45 megs each. There'll probably be an App for that soon. Just kidding, don't copy that idea I'm working on it myself...
I'm a sucker for giant archives of images, I think this is what the internet was invented for, the site it's hosted on has loads more cool stuff, pilots obviously and much more. Geek oooooon.
