Historic Photos -- a neat way to "see" how people and places once were



Photos tell us so many stories without saying a word.

Passionate individuals preserve and share photos for our enjoyment and edification.  There are hidden photo collections awaiting discovery.

Two recent posts about photo collections caught my eye, both for the content in each collection and for the selflessness of an individual who literally rescued thousands of photos from the “trash” so that they wouldn’t be lost.


These reminded me of other recent news events reporting incredible photographic finds.

So, though it often feels like “everything” historic has been found, these recent discoveries remind us that new discoveries of photos and documents are occurring every day!

Are you aware of a recently found cache of photographs or negatives?
