Viajando al siglo XIX con fotos impresionantes de la colección abierta del Getty

El Museo Getty lanzó hace poco su Programa de Contenido Abierto, en el que puso a disposición del público 4600 obras de arte, las cuales se pueden descargar gratis en su página, obviamente respetando los créditos. Así que me puse a buscar fotografías para ver cómo eran las ciudades más turísticas en el siglo XIX. Encontré imágenes maravillosas como la de la Torre Eiffel aún en construcción.

Las fotos son súper interesantes, aquí les comparto algunas que descargué y les recomiendo ver la colección de Getty y aprovechar esta gran oportunidad.
