Time to take a photographic walk back in time...

  Since its inception back in 1888, National Geographic magazine has graced the world with many a stunning image. Despite such a long publication run to date, the magazine has only been able to publish a small fraction of the images it has in its archives. That all changed in 2013, which was the year that marked the 125th anniversary since the magazine was launched. As part of the celebrations, the "Found" project resulted in the release of many photos that would have otherwise remained unseen. We've cherry-picked some of the best photos to emerge from the project just for you:
