    I just saw a pretty neat feature on the CBS program "Sunday Morning" about a photographer who has a decades-long project going on photographing all 50 states and the photos are going to be preserved at the Library of Congress. You can see some of the photos here. Preserving images of America Pictures - CBS News It was also pretty awe inspiring seeing glimpse of the Library of Congress. Makes me wish I lived in DC so I could get a library card and check that stuff out in person.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    That's very cool. What a project to take on!

    On the same page, though, there's a very disturbing link to a big cache of photos that some serial killer left, with a phone number to call if you recognize any of the people in them. From the '70s when I was about the same age as some of them. Creepy to say the least.
