FOUND: A New Collection of Rare Photos from the National Geographic Archives

NGS Picture ID:114038

Ladies and gen­tle­men, we present FOUND, a new site that fea­tures a curat­ed col­lec­tion of pho­tog­ra­phy from the Nation­al Geo­graph­ic archives. Launched as part of Nat­Geo’s 125th anniver­sary cel­e­bra­tion (hope­ful­ly we’re around in anoth­er 119 years too!), FOUND show­cas­es “pho­tographs that reveal cul­tures and moments of the past.” Many of these rare pho­tos have nev­er been pub­lished. We picked an imme­di­ate favorite from the col­lec­tion: Alexan­der Gra­ham Bell and his wife Mabel kiss­ing with­in a tetra­he­dral kite, one of his many inven­tions, in Octo­ber 1903. You can start perus­ing the pho­to archive here.
