If you’ve ever cursed Thoughtless People Of The Past, you may enjoy this most perfect tweet I saw this morning. Couldn’t possibly express it better myself.
Ok, so. On behalf of all historians, in all eras, I have three simple things to ask of you all:
1) keep diaries & write letters, and preserve them
2) write legibly, dammitall
3) for the love of all that is holy, label your photographs with who, what, where, and when, ffs
