The Library of Congress digitized old issues (1870s-90s) of the Statistical Atlas of the US, which looks to be an AWESOME publication full of really beautiful and interesting visualizations. And Brooklyn Brainery created an amazing web interface for it. Check it out!

There’s even a Tumblr full of really cool archival visualizations (and other stuff like this modern recreation of some of the charts using HTML and JavaScript).
