A Few Good Men





Some old photos and tintypes I had in my stash. The men in these pictures are a mystery.  I like to think they are good men who lived a full life.  I often wonder what happened to their families that these photos were no longer wanted.

I also love old photographs. I was lucky to have a grandfather who worked at Kodak and who was an avid amateur photographer. I have hundreds of old pictures of my father when he was young, my grandmother and their friends. I love your blog!

Oohh amazing, a photograph of a coloured man. Love it! It has a name written underneath, but I can't read it, could you tell me the name please? I know it must be his name, in those days people did that. My gran did, I didn't like it when she did it, but now I am grateful for all the names she gave on those old pics. She is not around anymore to tell me the names and relations she had with those people. I loved the stories she told me.
Thank you for these photographs, I'll keep them safe on my computer.

I love them all, but the last one of the 2 gentlemen on the bench is really awesome - they look so much more relaxed and happy! Thanks, Cora.
