National Geographic have set up a tumblr called National Geographic Found, to celebrate their 125th anniversary, where they’ll be sharing photos from their archives – many of which have never been seen before.

FOUND is a curated collection of photography from the National Geographic archives. In honor of our 125th anniversary, we are showcasing photographs that reveal cultures and moments of the past. Many of these photos have never been published and are rarely seen by the public. We hope to bring new life to these images by sharing them with audiences far and wide. Their beauty has been lost to the outside world for years and many of the images are missing their original date or location.
