The late Nick DeWolf — a MIT engineer who designed more than 300 semiconductor and electronic systems — really loved photography. So much that he carried a camera for most of his life. Now his son is digitising all his pictures and publishing them one by one.

So far he has 50,000 already, and counting. It’s a huge task, but the results are great. It feels like an Instagram feed from the past. A #superlatergram.

Actually, I wish he were publishing them on Instagram or 1000memories. I would subscribe to his feeds in a heartbeat.
