This Is WHAT COLLECTING IS ALL ABOUT


Take a little time to read this wonderful article at the NY Times about an old photo album. It's exactly what a collector of vintage photos dreams of.

  1. Wow! That was a beautiful story. Thanks for posting a link. One line stood out for me, a quote from the niece who cleans out her aunt's home and puts the album out with the trash. "I’m not a keeper." It's the grand cycle of one man's trash is another's treasure. So the world turns, with all the non-keepers leaving stuff around for us keepers to find.

    1. It is heartbreaking to think this could have been hauled away to the dump. I wish people would consider donating old photos to places, such as even the Goodwill that sells them online. There's someone out there that will treasure the old images. I think I'm about to gain control over several photo albums that document an RV group that lasted for around 35 years. I'm looking forward to it.

  2. Oh my! What a story!!! Wouldn't that be cool if the same thing happened for you? With the series with the lovely lady and her Army husband. And with the "frown" family kids?

    1. I was thinking the same thing. I wish someone would step forward and tell me their story.
