If you think that today's stock photos look staged or funny, wait till you see what they looked like in the 1970s! The photos by stock photo pioneer H. Armstrong Roberts give us a unique glimpse into the past. He founded one of the first major stock photography agencies in 1920, and it continues today under the name RobertStock.
