Hack #3

I recently came across this twitter page called “Lost in History.” It posts photos from all different time periods and I find myself learning something new every time they post something. I think it’s amazing how Twitter is a relatively new invention but it can be combined with history from over 100 years ago. This account has 3.4 million followers, which goes to show that people still find history interesting even when it is taught outside of a classroom setting. Some of the pictures I included from this account are a guide to men’s hairstyling in the 1950’s, an advertisement for a computer costing $6000 in the 1980’s, and a rare U.S. banknote with a Native American on it.
