    Oh my stars & garters, I love them too. I've got some old ones, but very few, and none as old as yours look to be.
    What an awesome lot of history to pass down!

    The New Yorkers are actually doing something not so new. Romans and people of those times rarely cooked at home. The idea of going out to get your food - now considered a luxury - was a necessity. Only the very wealthy had the facilities or space to keep and prepare food.

    I also know people who live in the swampy south who keep refrigerators (on) just for leather goods like shoes handbags and belts so they don't mold!!



    Where did you get those photos! I think I will print some to remind my kids how good they have it next time they want to bemoan the fact they don't have a DSi or whatever gizmo it is they want today!!!

    Does anyone know when people started smiling in pictures? That's one thing you never see in those pics is a smile. Makes you wonder if life was so hard they had nothing to smile about. Of course Michael Landon was always smiling.

    Neat pics though. Seeing all the hand built houses and stuff. I'm glad I was born much later.

    Quote:One of the reasons people didn't smile in photos back then was due to lack of dental care; they didn't want their bad teeth showing for all posterity.

    Very neat photos, thanks for sharing!
