Those jokers at the George Eastman House get my gold star for photo-related April Foolery with their purported “totally” 90′s website, but the real hilarity was the wall text label accompanying the page:
(American, active June 4, 1995–Sept. 6, 1995)
[GEORGE EASTMAN HOUSE WEBPAGE]. ca. 1995
George Eastman House Website Collection.
… and the supposed exhibits one could visit back then:
Small Brown Photographs
Ansel Adams, Ahoy!
NEW RARE Talbot Talbotypes!
