With the 100th anniversary of the assassination of Franz Ferdinand last week, we’re now officially entering the Centenary of the First World War (or WWI as we call it in the States). We’ll be sharing a lot of exciting projects we’re involved in over the coming weeks and months, but for now many of us on the Historypin team are getting deep into research of all types. My own personal research has revolved around my grandfather’s WWI journal, complete with a couple dozen tiny photographs. As I’ve shared these resources with my extended family, more pieces of the picture are coming into focus (oh!). Just today I received the original Kodak Vest Pocket Camera my grandfather used in the war from my cousin Dan, who received the camera as a gift from my grandfather many years ago. I’m looking forward to figuring out how we’ll incorporate the use of this camera for one of our many First World War projects!
