Monday is Memorial Day, historic photos at DPLA

The library will be closed this Monday in honor of Memorial Day.  Even though we’ll be closed, you can still get your history fix: there are some amazing vintage photographs now available from the newly-launched Digital Public Library of America.  They don’t have all the bugs worked out quite yet, but there are already some really great historic images available when you search for Memorial Day, or the holiday’s old name, Decoration Day.
