Showing any type of concept in pictures is a good thing.

I agree, great account:

Many images that @HistoryInPictures shares are not in the public domain, nor do they credit the photographers for the images they share. Alexis Madrigal of The Atlantic asked Xavier Di Petta why they don’t get permission to use the photos first, he stated:

“It would not be practical,” he said. “The majority of the photographers are deceased. Or hard to find who took the images.” Then he said, “Look at Buzzfeed. Their business model is more or less using copyright images.”

Nonetheless, it’s pretty impressive to see two young people offer something so interesting that doesn’t involve anything gross or sexually inappropriate (@EarthPix is also another one of their creations).
