A vintage photo finds its home


Here’s a somewhat secret fact about me: I collect vintage photographs.  I’m strangely fascinated by old photos and getting a sneak peak into strangers’ lives from decades ago.  My collection has old photos from the late 1800’s up until some awesome little shots taken on 1960’s era Brownies.

The other day I got a new stack of old photos and as I was looking through them I found this photo, which has the address of where it was taken written on the back.  I plugged the street address into Google Maps and looked at the street view of the house- which had some changes made over the year but was unmistakeably the same house.

So today I am dropping the photo in the mail to the residents at that house.  I mean, how awesome would it be to go to your mailbox one day and a little card greets you that says something like, “hey there, I found this photo of your house in 1934.  Thought you might like to have it.  Enjoy!”
