Scouting: The Images of a Movement | Thursday Spotlight

If you have followed this blog for a little bit, you probably know that I love collecting old photographs from the history of the Scouting Movement. Besides the simple nostalgia appeal, these images often capture some really cool things and serve as a reminder to me of the high standards that the young men of the past held themselves to.

Today, I’m going to start a series that I hope to continue weekly every Thursday in addition to the other series running on Scouting Rediscovered. Over the years, I have gathered quite a collection of great photographs from the past.

So, in this series, I’m going to highlight seven of the photos each week that stood out to me. I hope you enjoy looking at this glimpse into the past, and I hope the photos inspire you as much as they do me. Please help others to Rediscover Scouting by sharing this post with others. Thanks for reading!
