Rosebud!

No, not the famous last word of Charles Foster Kane but rather Rosebud’s WWI and Early Aviation Image Archive.

Actually the website of Rod Filan and maintained by “Rosebud”, it was a treasure trove of downloadable early aviation pictures from the early 1900s through the end of WWI.  I hadn’t visited in a while and when I tried to several months ago (I needed new background pics for the work computer) my bookmark didn’t work anymore.  My friend Mr Google couldn’t tell me what happened nor did I find any answers at the next best place I could think of for information The Aerodrome.

I still don’t know why it went away, but archive.org and their Wayback Machine found a version that’s still active: Rosebud’s WWI and Early Aviation Image Archive.

It’s still well worth a visit…
