What is The Forgotten Photographs Project?
It’s a database of hundreds of lost and discarded photographs from around the county. These photographs were collected from a number of sources; antique shops, flea markets, auctions and estate sales, and put together into one searchable database. Each photograph is identified on the back and includes the county and state the picture was acquired from, in addition to any other identifying information available. Each month the database is updated with hundreds of new photographs and remains free for everyone to use.
All of the photos are pre-1923 and donations of photos are always welcome.
It’s always fun to look through photos. I always associate sepia tone photos with those of our ancestors.
