I recently became aware of a website that is dedicated to posting high resolution images some of which are 100 years old- www.shorpy.com It has an amazing collection of images across a broad spectrum of subject matter.
The site is named after a fourteen year old Alababa mine worker- Henry Sharp "Shorpy" Higginbotham. Shorpy was employed as an oiler on the tipple at Bessie Mine, near
Birmingham, . There are four photos of Shorpy and
additional biographical information.
Find those here . Jefferson County, Alabama
