Digital Vaults

As programs like Picassa and iPhoto help photographers get more accustomed to sorting through metaphorical stacks of photos, it is interesting to see web interfaces that try to simulate the photo exploration process. a fun one came to my attention the other day called Digital Vaults. This is a web interface from the National Archives letting you explore a very varied collection of images from Albert Einstein's declaration of intention to become an American citizen to an 1898 photo of a soldier in the Spanish American War.
