There are a lot of gems on Amazon if you know where to look.

It’s not always clear what Amazon carries when it comes to the things-to-hang-on-your-wall department. (There’s a lot of weirdness like this.) But if you know what to search for and where to look, there are actually some fabulous finds — 17 of which we’ve gathered below.

Photographer O. Winston Link spent a good chunk of the late 1950s traveling through small southern towns, documenting the steam engine’s last hurrah and the major role it played in peoples’ lives. This one is of a group of friends hanging out by a swimming pool as a train zooms by, and feels so ’50s.

This map caused quite a stir when it was released (Central Park was square, the Hudson River was brown), but designer Massimo Vignelli wasn’t going for accuracy; his goal was to make the sprawling city look organized and visually pleasing. The map was scrapped in 1979 for a more geographically correct version, but Vignelli’s edition remains beloved among designers.
