The Lively Morgue

The New York Times's pictorial archive, which holds more than 2.3 million printed photographs or contact sheets as well as millions of negatives, has long been called "the morgue," due in part as it's primary function for obituary research. The Lively Morgue, a New York Times editorial project on Tumblr, regularly publish visual treasures from the morgue, and are now available as reprints.
