National Geographic have set up a tumblr called National Geographic Found to celebrate their 125th anniversary.

Found is a curated collection of photography from the National Geographic archives. In honor of our 125th anniversary, we are showcasing photographs that reveal cultures and moments of the past. Many of these photos have never been published and are rarely seen by the public. We hope to bring new life to these images by sharing them with audiences far and wide. Their beauty has been lost to the outside world for years and many of the images are missing their original date or location.”

Images from top:
1. A cowgirl put a nickel in an Al Paso parking meter to hitch her pony, October 1939.
2. Club members on the ocean front are shaded by decorative parasols, 1930.
3. Children swim and play in an oceanside pool, February 1955.
4. Campers prepare a meal beneath sea grape trees, Cinnamon Bay, Virgin Islands, 1968.
