    I've had it bookmarked for a while now. Every couple of days I visit there and immerse myself in the distant but seemingly familiar and vivid past. Ain't pitchurs wunnerful!!??

    Er...wow. I've been looking at this stuff for hours now. I should stop, but it's so interesting.

    Thank you for posting this.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    Another great site for vernacular/vintage photography is Square America:

    http://www.squareamerica.com/

    I like this site because it is true vernacular, snap shots from regular folks. I don't know what it is about this one but it is as addictive as crack.

    Fantastic, this is what photography is, everything, everywhere. Thanks for the post, I'm going to spend a lot of time there.
