a friend found these in the trash tonight. loads and loads of old photos. many of trains, and horsewagons, and national parks back in the teens and twenties, people w/ animals - rabbits and chickens, and dolls, and early cars. some very cool ones. what kind of photos are these? any good?

    They look to be early 20th century snapshots or real photo postcards-- the size and back would help to determine.

    Subject matter is paramount in images and these shown are desirable.

    A great rescue from the trash!

    Watch yourself with the photos-- take it from me, it is easy to get obsessive and end up with THOUSANDS of them!

    thanks manikin. i think that's GREAT advice scottvez. i already have a lot of really cool ones from my family/ancestors. i don't know why i'm collecting more of people i have no connection to.

    You could always send the train ones to know just in case you do get obsessed with all of these!:)
