Beer Goggles

What's cooler than black and white pictures you may ask? B&W pictures of guys drinking beer! Beer Guys

If you're anything like me, you weren't alive when this picture was taken, but apparently Jackson has had quite a past in the production and distribution of what some would call the "nectar of the gods". (That's beer for you teetotalers out there.) Either way this is just one of the many of interesting pictures you can find on our newly deployed picture archives. While I was working on this project I found out how much I really enjoy looking at some of these old pictures. There are so many things that run through your mind like "When did mustaches like that go out of style?" and "Did they let that kid drink too?"

Another interesting search term if you're feeling adventurous is the "Camp Family". Apparently this family from the Jackson area, as far as I can tell, went around the world in the early part of the century, taking pictures that rival some of the best you find in National Geographic. (And no, I know what you're thinking, not those kind of pictures.) But anyways there is a very interesting series of shots from them on their travels. Here is a good example.

Camp India 

Whatever you want to look up though, you'll find. Well almost anything. Ok...... so we only have selected pictures that are somehow Jackson related, and there's about 700 of them. But it's still really cool. Check it out.

Kool, ;-) but, "nectar of the gods" ? I'm suprised I didn't think you knew that much about beer.

The Camp family was from Jackson and made corsets. WOW- how's that for diversity? Beer and Corsets.
