Ever wondered what the London subway must have been like during the punk rock era of the 1970s and 80s?

Histagrams is a Tumblr blog that depicts historical events as Instagram posts.
Site creators Gusto NYC and Gavin Alaoen imagine how historically significant moments might have been shared if the people behind them had had Instagram at their disposal.
Gusto NYC and Alaoen’s creations run the gamut between comical, crude and awkward by taking the experiment far beyond just the square crop and filters. Their photos come complete with comments and likes that add ironic context to the photograph.
Gusto NYC told Mashable that the idea came to him while wondering what Instagram might have looked like had it existed five years ago. Then I thought 10, 20 years ago, but why stop there? The purpose of the site is putting a lighthearted/comedic spin on history, while also being able to comment on past/current pop-cultural behaviors
“Manual created a complete visual and verbal personality to reflect the owners’ passion for beer, while reflecting a little of the local history of Loveland as a gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park, and as a town founded with the inception of the Colorado Central Railroad. The identity takes cues from Loveland’s past as a railroad town, from the logo badge itself, to the custom-designed tap handles based on 19th century railway signal levers.
A central part of the identity is a custom-designed display typeface in two styles. A key focus of our design strategy was to marry the old with new, and bring style into the brewery tasting room experience. Manual worked closely with the client to develop the interior and exterior, exemplifying the brewery’s charm. We designed the interior to retain existing elements of the building, but offset it with a clean, contemporary feel.”
HOLY SHIT I HAVE BREAKING NEWS FOR EVERYONE. THE LIBERTY BELL IS A FAKE! I REPEAT, THE LIBERTY BELL THAT WE HAVE HERE IN PHILLY IS NOT THE REAL ONE.
