To honor its 125th year of publication, the iconic yet ever-evolving National Geographic magazine has released many never-before-seen photographs from its archives via an incredibly user-friendly and modern Tumblr account. The professionally curated collection of these photos goes by the name of FOUND, and gives us a clear vision (often startlingly so) of lost decades and cultures that may seem unreal against a present-day backdrop.
Below is a highlighted collection of 25 time-capsule images that were once lost, but now are FOUND.

Force-feeding a shake to ensure its venom supply, 1950.
