You guys know that i like to write "articles" about CBGs. Probably for my own enjoyment and to bore most of you.
I wanted to do some sort of a survey about the features of the oldest CBGs; Like how many had sound holes, how many strings etc. I thought it could be interesting.

I visited a few sites with historical pictures but on some of them i was not sure which were genuinely "old made" or modern made with vintage cigar boxes.

Which sites do you guys recommend for sourcing pictures of genuine "old made" CBGs please. I would really like "lots" of pictures and create a Db of their features.
