Unseen Photos

A glimpse into history :

  • Archivists who bought a stash of CDs at a house clearance sale found 2,400 photos of Ground Zero in New York taken following the 9/11 attacks in 2001.

They appear to have been taken by an as yet unidentified construction worker who helped to clear up the wreckage of the World Trade Center towers and surrounding area.

The CDs were in poor condition but the data was ultimately retrievable.

The photos can be seen at this link here . Some are blurry, some are repetitive, but all hint at the scale of destruction that many can’t even begin to comprehend.
