Now this would be a dream job!

What’s great is that National Geographic is not going to let these amazing images languish in their archives… many are available for purchase, and they also post them online on their NG Found Tumblr account

Below: the first photograph of a nature scene in National Geographic — Herald Island, taken by J.Q. Lovell, published in the March 1890 issue. Fun fact: the president of NG at the time of this photo’s publication was none other than Alexander Graham Bell, who was also one of the society’s founding members.
