Guns, Glorious Guns

An assortment of snapshots from the photo blog Square America in a section titled Guns, Guns, Guns!!.

"Not only do these photographs contain a wealth of primary source information on how life was lived," writes the site's curator, "they also constitute a shadow history of photography, one too often ignored by museums and art galleries."

He collects 20th century snapshots of all kinds. The site is divided into categories like "The Bottom Half," which has about 30 photos of people without their heads showing and "Catch of the Day," which shows fishermen and women with fresh catches.
