A movie database and search engine (documentaries too!), filled with HD still images.
If you wondered what New York City actually looked like in the early 1940s, wonder no more. Here’s a window to that era, with a Google Maps-like interface — click on a dot on the map, and see an actual street view photograph of the location, taken between 1939-1941.
Move and place your mouse pointer anywhere on the screen, and a photographic image will appear with someone pointing at your pointer! Silly and mindless, but this may keep you entertained for a few minutes, depending on how bored you are. It’s actually quite precise — see if you can get the same image to appear again. It’ll be way tougher than you think!
