THE KIDS Lesson one.
It is always a mystery to us how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.

  1. I could get lost in the Lost Gallery. This is a wonderful collection. it almost makes me want to abandon postcards and collect photo booth pictures instead, but I rarely see them. It must have taken you a long time to collect all of these.

  2. Thanks very much for your comment.

    I just got into rescuing other people's photographs a few years ago but I have always felt a need to preserve photographs. A camera is our only time machine.

    I’m glad you enjoy the photobooth shots. I find them often at the bottom of the box in the flea markets. They are so small they sort of filter down there. That’s why so many collectors miss them. I like to gather them because they so often suggest funny captions.

    That’s easy! Collecting post cards is HARD! There are so MANY! It’s an art form all to itself.
