Two Fascinating Views of Pre-Quake Katmandu

While posting about natural disasters isn't necessarily our purview, there are two photo-based pieces we've seen that most likely wouldn't have seen the light of day had it not been for the quake in Nepal. While there are incredible efforts documenting the destruction and its affects on the people of Nepal, here are two projects that predate the earthquake.

Founding editor of Wired magazine, Kevin Kelly posted an extraordinary set of photos (Kodachrome, most likely?) that show the city as it looked to him in 1976.
