The advent of digital cameras and online photo sharing has enabled amateur photographs to capture moments in time and share them with a global audience almost immediately. The global recession and mass store closures, like that of Circuit City in the United States, only adds to this phenomenon. Flickr has led the charge all along, as sets of geotagged photos become the equivalent of interactive, constantly-updated history books.

The photos in the gallery above all document the nationwide Circuit City store closures. By all news accounts, these stores have become scenes of near pandemonium as shoppers scramble for the best deals. There are lines that extend out of the building at locations that were devoid of life mere months ago.
