World War II Posters and the Statue of Liberty

Another day, another history themed post. Today's post is dedicated to sites with historically themes images and by that I mean photographs and posters. Today's trip through time has us travelling from World War II then back to the late 19th century, and ending up in 2012.

First up on our tour is a collection of historic World War II posters from the Cincinnati Digital Library. These World War II propaganda posters are from both the U.S. and other nations. Since they are digital they can be downloaded and printed for use in the classroom. History teachers should race on over to this site ASAP.

Next on today's tour is the Denver Post's Photo Blog about the Statue of Liberty. This post was published in 2011 for the Statue's 125th anniversary. It features pictures from the creation of the Statue of Liberty as well as many rare pictures of the Statue over its 125+ years of existence.

Last on our tour today is a photo collection titled 46 of the Most Amazing Photographs of 2012 from a site called Many of the pictures will be unfamiliar to most people but there are a few images that everyone should recognize like Felix Baumgartner's leap. A few of the pictures are not from 2012 but the site claims they were "discovered" in 2012. It really didn't matter because the images in this collection are pretty cool.
