Here is a group of photographs that came from an unsorted pile in an "antique store" in a small town in Kansas. Since most of them seem to have come from the same roll of film, they are presented here as an album.
All of them have a message on the reverse except the one at the right. It is a sunrise or a sunset taken from an upper window.
For all of the rest, the reverse is presented just to the right of the snapshot.
What can we learn from this set of snapshots taken in the mid 1940's, somewhere in France?
We learned about things that interested one person, or what he thought would interest the folks he was sending the snaps too. We learned we should be more detailed in our notations on the reverse. Wouldn't it be nice to know a few last names and a few more dates? Maybe a more specific location?
Keep that in mind when you are making notations on the backs of your snapshots. What? There are no more snapshots? Just digital files...I see. Well, now we learned something very ominous, didn't we?
