Friend and designer Samantha Curcio recently introduced me to the site Shorpy. Shorpy is a vintage photography blog featuring thousands of high-definition images from the 1850s to 1950s. There is hours of inspiration on this site. I love the images featuring signage with beautiful handwritten typography. Also the old branding like Dr Pepper below. It’s so awesome to see how brands have evolved.
