Look at Old Pictures of Louisville

Got some time to kill?

Check out historic photo's from Louisville's past.

Dating back to the mid-1860's, these photos depict Louisville in a whole new light. Some of my favorite pictures include the people making Louisville Slugger bats and the lunch display at Woolworth's. Maybe I'm just hungry, but a chicken salad sandwich sounds pretty tasty.

You may have seen this link on Facebook, but in case you missed it, I thought I'd call attention to it here. Some of those old Louisville houses were mansions. Other snapshots include parks, hotels, and expositions. Slack off for 5 minutes and take a gander at the way things used to be.
