Award for oldest photograph to Bengineer, who found this 1908 image of William Howard Taft, clearly blinded by exploding flash powder:
And the award for just plain creepiest image goes to Chris, who found this 1952 V-for-Victory pic of Dick and Pat Nixon, sans Checkers:
Stay tuned for more: on Wednesday, I'll post the full slide show.
