Pictures of FBI's Colossal Fingerprint Filing System During World War II

The following photos give us a fascinating look inside the FBI’s overflow filing system. Housed during World War II in the Washington, D.C. Armory, the FBI’s archive collected over 23 million cards and 10 million fingerprint records, with around 400,000 new cards added every month.
