Newsweek and Daily Beast social media editor Brian Ries says the just-launched Picture Dept Tumblr will feature photos from the magazine and website, as well as shots that didn’t get published in print or online. His release notes:
The blog’s name is part of the Newsweek legacy. One of the photo editors discovered a box of yellowed 4 x 6 index cards listing all the images that ran in the magazine from the 1920′s to the 1970′s. Each card was titled “PICTURE DEPT.” the original title of the magazine’s photo team.
