A great photo album

The U.S. Naval Historical Center's Photographic Section is one of the best kept non-secrets when it comes to historical photographic archives online.

Where else can you browse and see stuff like this?

The Photographic Section has several ways in which photographs are catalogued for access, but browsing the Numerical List of Posted Images can be very rewarding, even with the extra effort of clicking on serial numbers.

Once, I found a photo of a young Gerald Ford playing basketball on an aircraft carrier's hangar deck.
