The Hagley Vault is a cool Tumblr for the Hagley Museum and Library Archives. Located in Wilmington, Delaware that focuses on the history of American business, technology, and innovation.
Since the site is Tumblr based, it is really easy to navigate. All you have to do is scroll down the page and click on the things you’re interested in. I love that they post archival material that matches themes like Fashion Friday, No Shave November, and even National Pickle Day!
Each post features images that have been digitized from the collection, information about the collection, and links back to the actual catalog entry for the content being displayed. They also often include links to media they’ve shared on other platforms, for example Instagram.
This is a really cool way to look back at the history of Amercian business, technology, and innovation. Go check it out today!
