Popular Science Archives
I recently discovered while wandering aimlessly around the interweb that Popular Science archived all of its previous publications and posted them on their website. Editions date back as far as 1872 with full illustrations from the original prints. More recent editions include all of the original articles and advertisements as well. Its pretty damn entertaining if you have some time to kill. All you have to do is search by the month and year you’re interested in. Check it out…educate yourself.
