Get some visual stimulation by going back in time. Check out Shorpys story (http://www.shorpy.com/shorpy) and imagine the poignant life of child laborers at the turn of the century.
Great find. Tons of high resolution stuff too.
I just spent quite some time browsing the gallery and the associated fine art print site. If I had any money to spend right now, I might consider buying a giclee. The turn of the century stuff is obviously the most fascinating, but I think I found myself a possible desktop wallpaper with this 1947 print (http://www.junipergallery.com/images/full/10079u1.jpg).

I've always wanted to experiment with some of the historical techniques. The recipes here are tempting -

i dont know about Shorpy, but Eugene Dalton is the mang! ;)
Eugene Dalton, November 1913, Fort Worth, Texas. Some results of messenger and newsboy work. For nine years this 16-year-old boy has been newsboy and messenger for drug stores and telegraph companies. He was recently brought before the Judge of the Juvenile Court for incorrigibility at home. Is now out on parole, and was working again for drug company when he got a job carrying grips in the Union Depot. He is on the job from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. (17 hours a day) for seven days in the week. His mother and the judge think he uses cocaine, and yet they let him put in these long hours every day. He told me "There ain't a house in 'The Acre' (red-light district) that I ain't been in. At the drug store, all my deliveries were down there." Says he makes $15 to $18 a week.
