This first photo I call the barn raising. This large gathering of men were all assembled together for some reason and I assume it was to erect the building behind them. The picture below is of my great grandparents new car.I believe the year was 1920

I have a thing for old pictures and these are wonderful and full of unspoken stories.

I love old photographs and have a whole collection myself.
I like to hold them, feel them and hear them whisper their stories.
Yours are wonderful and filled with
whisperers just for you!

This is my first Sepia Scene :)
Have a great day!

I love old pics like this - 1920, WoW! I always used to ask why nobody smiled in the old days & my dad would say, "They had nothin to smile about back then!" But then, I'd hear people say, "The good ole days" - so, as a kid, I was a bit confused.

These remind me so much of the old photo albums my dad left me. I almost feel like I can add names to the people and they are really my relatives rather then yours :-) I guess a lot of these old photos are so alike....some day people will say that about us! Oh, dear!

My husband and I are making a documentary (not for profit) and would love to use the old photograph titled Barn-raising in it. I don't know if it is under copyright, but if it is we would very much appreciate your giving us permission for its use. Could you get back to us by email ( and let us know either way? Thank you.
