THE BACK PAGES

Why are they called
"BACK PAGES?"

No. It's not because they are like the last pages in the old photo album.

These are pages that keep growing. When a photograph is found that fits a certain group or category such as BIG HATS, they are added to that page. The page keeps growing.

And ...That's it.

Back Page - The Ceremony


Occasionally a photograph turns up in LOST GALLERY that shows rituals or costumes or some activity that makes one curious. They seem to depict some sort of ceremony or celebration somewhere. Can you guess what is happening here?

Do you have any ideas about these?

Special events do bring the cameras out. And years later, we often have no idea what the snap shots are about.

So after wandering around LOST GALLERY for a few hours, these photographs were gathered that also seem to be about some celebration or ceremonial activity.
