I've posted 3 more found photos to my album. I can't post them in their full glory on this site (the album and the site shrink them) so I'm going to crop my favorite details, like this guy to the left.
Almost two years ago I bought a box of over 100 photos for $10 at a flea market in Vermont. (I also bought a little boy's scrapbook from the 40's or 50's, but that's a whole different Amelie ripoff project.) The photos seem to be the collection of one family, and from what's written on the backs, go back at least as far as 1898. Anyway, here's the first one I scanned in -- chosen because it was the first one I grabbed out of the box:
Two things about this project:
1. I'm scanning the photos in as-is -- no retouching of any kind. If you want to retouch these photos or do anything with them you want, be my guest (I wanna see, though!)
2. It's a long shot, since the latest photos I have appear to be from the 50's or early 60's, but the dream would of course be to return this collection to its rightful owners, so I'm going to leave out what little details I have about them in case by some stroke of luck someone recognizes their family members.
The album has a total of four photos now, but I'm going to try to put up a new one every day.
This was a human-interest-isn't-the-weather-nice photo on the front page of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune in 1981 (I was famous!):
Anyway, I bought a scanner, and starting very soon (like tomorrow), I'm going to have a separate site for my found photograph collection that spans the 1890s to the 1960s (mostly from a box I bought at a flea market in Vermont a few years ago.)
