Google and Popular Mechanics - Bringing 106 Years of PM to the Web

"The Popular Mechanics magazine archive—especially the 100-plus-year-old section—stinks. It smells a bit as though it's been stored in the wet basement of your untidy, chain-smoking uncle. When you get beyond sensory observations, the content of our 106-year archive captures a remarkable breadth of news, views and practical advice over the past century. Still, spend more than a few minutes with your face buried in paper that's more than a century old and, unavoidably, dust and mold start doing strange things to your sinus cavities."
This has got to be one of my favorite sites of all time. Popular Mechanics was one of the first magazines I subscribed to as a child. One could say I used it as my reference to the future Anyone who had any interest in technology before the days of the computer and Internet will surely know what I mean. This is a great place to show you children or anyone for that matter.

You can search the archives on your own, but on a weekly basis PM will also be highlighting their favorite past stories on the PM site.
