Looking for past POW photos

by Alpinist » Mon Jul 13, 2009 3:12 pm

I'm trying ot help get the POW album caught up to date. Any tips on how to find out what the previous weekly POW photos were would be greatly appreciated.

The Wayback Machine on "www.archive.org/" does not have records for SP for the past couple of years. Is there another archiving website where I might be able to find previous copies of SP for the past 6 months?

I thought of that but unfortunately that query only works if the photo was attached to the POW album. Since that is a manual process, and some POW photos did not get attached properly, the missing photos won't appear in the query results.

I don't think photos are flagged in any way that designates that they were selected as POW. That's one of the reasons why the POW album is valuable. The album is the only way that I know of to identify historically which photos were selected as POW.

Does anyone know what the POW was LAST week? I was on vacation without Intenet access and missed it. I'd like to add it to the POW album.
