"The New York Times Store, which offers hundreds of products -- from books to classic photographs, reprints of vintage news to posters -- is part of the News Services Division of The New York Times. The Times strives to offer visitors a secure and safe environment for all credit card purchases".
"The Photo Archives, with about 7 million images stored and preserved over the past century, is one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of photographs in the world. It had its beginnings in 1896, when photography made its first appearance in The Times's Illustrated Sunday Magazine with portraits of Stephen A. Douglas and John Bell, both candidates for the presidency in 1860. The archives grew day by day with the addition of hundreds of photos submitted from around the world by staff photographers and photo agencies. In 1919, the newspaper started its Times Wide World Photos syndicate, an organization for gathering and distributing news photos. The Times sold Wide World Photos to the Associated Press in 1941, where it still operates. Today, the Photo Archives grows by hundreds of rolls of film and many thousands of digital images each week, photographed by some of the finest journalists in the world. It continues to serve as an indispensable source of visual history, helping to make The Times the pre-eminent American newspaper. Several hundred historic images are now on The New York Times Store, but it will be adding hundreds of more photographs each year".
This is interesting and intriguing, fascinating and curious, so much so that people have been known to write in and say "Are those photos real?".
