The Retronaut Blog Assembles Pictures from the Past

The Retronaut blog puts its catch phrase "The past is a foreign country. This is your passport" into play. Sections beginning with the 1800s bleed into the 2010s, each filled with pictures from the past decades. Images of Elvis Presley, Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe fill the pages, although more obscure themes such as Jantzen swimwear and Fiat 500s 1955 brochure are also present.

Retonaut's collection is a bona fide gold mine for vintage pundits. The themes are bizarre and popular all at once, letting viewers into worlds they may not have known even existed.

The categories of maps, places, posters, sport and transport add further order to the chronological layout. Specific images can thus be sought out, enabling historic research via the website. Stats for Historical Snapshot Collections Trending: Older & Average
