Monkey Around With Scopes Photos

The title may be a little bit flippant, but the photos definately have historical value.  This is one of the six reasons that we take photos in my photojournalism class.  We take photos for historical value.

The pictures were taken by an editor at Science Services (magazine?) during the famous “Scopes Monkey Trial.”  The photos are old and of course decaying, so digitizing them and making them available for the public is a huge service to us all.

The pictures are a part of the Smithsonian Institute, who have apparently joined Flickr to make some photos of value available to the public.  I for one, complement them on this use of techonology and hope they make more photographs available.
