    Is it OK to throw out photo-antiquities?

    As I troll the depths of my photoaccumulation I am finding some items whose value I am seriously doubting. Would the photopowers take offense if I simply discarded items such as this large but old and tatty Kodak ad?

    Thanks,

    Jon

    A museum would cry big tears over this cruel act.

    If you have some old ad pieces, I will gladly take them off your hands. I can scan them and use them for collage work for school. I had considered buying some at a flea market here in town, but they want 10.00-20.00 per page for them. For some reason...

    Give them away in the classifieds here, do a good deed. I hate to see stuff like that wind up in the trash, but I'm like that. There's some old tatty maps from 1897 in my bedroom.
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    old Kodak Ad

    I have a few old box Kodaks of little value (except the 0s & 00s) but this would look good in the back of the glass case. I have some VPK ads in with my VPKs.

    I'll pay you postage and a little for the hassle factor to ship it to me instead of throwing it in the can. (Unless you live in Lower Elbonia)

    Packrats of the world unite (and share). It's amazing what some people (me for instance) will keep. But, in this case, I'll say that I have enough of my own flotsam and jetsam to want yours. The next bit though...

    Hi there - wow, I was surprised by the outpouring of sympathy for this item! If you can give me your address I will send it along to you. Once sent, I will let you know the postage. I am in Massachusetts, by the way.
