The New York Times Has a Vintage Photo Tumblr

The New York Times has “a morgue” — where unpublished photos go to rot. It’s more like a mass, tended grave actually. So, how many? “Our best guess is five million to six million prints and contact sheets (each sheet, of course, representing many discrete images) and 300,000 sacks of negatives, ranging in format size from 35 millimeter to 5 by 7 inches — at least 10 million frames in all.” And more. In less than a year, they sure have changed their anti-Tumblr tune. Follow The Lively Morgue and discover Prohibition era, speakeasy paper mannequins with hooch in their butt!
