Over at the brilliant A Continuous Lean, noted Ohioan (and fellow Bobcat) Michael Williams has posted a few wonderful photos from the recently digitized Department of Energy Oak Ridge's Office archive. The photos capture the day-to-day goings on a town of 70,000+ created from whole cloth by the government to assist in uranium production for the Manhattan Project. While the entire archive is impressive, I'd like to call attention to some really nice type and illustration. Take a look at these wonderful security billboards (these photos date to either 1960 or 1970, depending on the image):
As a bonus, how great is this traveling exhibit, shot in 1957?
