This is awesome

I’m sure you all know about it, but I am having a ball going through shorpy’s historical photos. Though there aren’t nearly enough from the early 1930s. Still. Dead fascinating.

To everyone who sent me the photo of the Aussie spider eating the Aussie bird: Why, yes, out spiders are tough. But our birds are not wussy.

    How is that spider even REAL?! It looks like one straight out of a Harry Potter movie!!!

    I really wish I hadn’t clicked on that spider link.

    Gah. I am arachnophobic and yet compelled to click on pictures of terrifying spiders every time.

    The historical photos are fantastic, though. Coal miners with live flame headlamps!

    That is seriously the most icky spider I’ve ever seen. Poor bird…
