Fascinating pictures on the Hokumburg Goombah blog

Thanks to an NPR blog, I’ve learned of an extraordinary blog that seems St. Louis based. It ranges from political content to historical stuff and beyond, in a way that I associate with the early days of the blogosphere but thought might have been gone.

The first picture might be the earliest photograph of a human being, from St. Louis in 1838. Even if it isn’t the earliest, it’s a beautiful picture. Look very carefully, and you’ll see a guy perhaps having his shoes shined.

And then there’s another one:

The second remarkable picture? Look at the guy with the guitar.

It’s Jimi Hendrix, in 1961.

There’s a lot else going on in this blog (e.g. the only known film of Mark Twain) ┬áCheck it out.
