Why is it people archive history with shitty res photos or video?

Recommended Posts

Today is May Day. While it's celebration value in the USA is long gone, I like to remember it every year and upload a few photos from my archive of May Day fetes, maypoles, etc to the I.A.. 

Here are a couple of RPPC's I just scanned and sent in.

https://archive.org/search.php?query=Maypole In Parade So. Bend IN 1915

I was reading about May Day celebrations at Bryn Mawr women's college. 


Now the photos at that site are crappy to start with, but I'm not going to chew people out for being bad photogs. But at least put up some hi res photos of your crap.

Why is it people archive history with shitty res photos or video? Someday that may be all that is left for the historical record. I saved one of the photos at the site and it was 18kb. It was useless, so trashed it and gave up on the site.
