Covering up the Past

Another cool site. is a database of magazine covers from the 19th and early 20th centuries.

The Popular Science and Technology section is particularly fun to thumb through. Radio in the 20s was like personal computing in the 80s... all geeky and experimental, and by the 30s it was going through its dot-com boom. Some of these covers could be cropped into great desktop pics.
