    Not related to MFT at all, but Yale has mapped the 175,000 photos taken by the Farm Security Administration around the United States in the 1930s and 40s:

    You can choose a county, or via a drop down menu at the top pick an individual photographer to see their work.

    Interesting from both a historic stand point, and as a demonstration of what a great boon photography is for historians.
