(Circus Elephants & Schoolkids, 1966. All images courtesy of Archivast)Introduce your brood to the beauty of black-and-white photography with a new site called Archivast. The company uncovers compelling images from leading historical archives such as The New York Times and the Museum of the City of New York, and sells them online as prints (framed or unframed) in various sizes. We love the storybook-like magic of these two particular photographs, which turn a procession of elephants and parade balloons into imagination-rich experiences.
(Uncle Sam, Columbus Circle, 1939)
