vintage museum photos

Via BoingBoing, check out these fabulous vintage photos from the American Museum of Natural History. I love dioramas, and the exhibit installation images are just great. Taxidermy mounting, diorama background painting, articulating dinosaur bones, casting animal models ... And the vintage exhibitions! I love the images of earnest children being led around ... and doing so-called Indian dances in their construction paper bonnets. State-of-the-art, 1900s-1970s.
