September 11th, 2001 is a day that anybody who was around at the time will never forget. And while the world keeps spinning, it’s a day that will forever be discussed, especially as new information possibly comes to light. Now, almost 18 years after the event, 2,389 new photos shot around ground zero during September and October 2001 have been discovered. They were found in a house clearance sale burned onto CD-Roms.
The stash of CDs was acquired by archivists Jason Scott, who had no idea what was going to be on them at the time. They say that it’s a “miracle” that they were even able to transfer so much from them given the age of the CDs. The images are a mix of shots from both ground level and above. This suggests that they might have been taken by a construction worker. But nobody knows who this person might be.
