    Special thanks to The Internet Archive for bringing valuable contents to us readers in the beginning of 2022. Instruction/guide books shown above are deeply nostalgic to me as they evoke memories of bookstores with booklets giving information and instructions on almost everything in life – information that is now accessed on the web and not through books anymore.

    This is a quite unique and fantastic resource of, well, just about everything. I’m very grateful for it and was more than happy to make a small donation a while ago when I had the funds.
    keep up the good work!

    Love this sites audio dramas and comedy, all the programs we used to get on TV or radio but are now cancelled in case they upset someone’s feelings

    The Internet Archive has been and is still one of the best places to research online. I have used it many times over the years and it is still a favorite place to research for me. Thank you all for what you do and you are the most helpful places to go to for research. I will keep telling people about your site.
