I know most things in vintage shops once belonged to people from the past, but I guess it's still weird when you find a box of old photos and postcards. Each photo is a single moment in someone's life and now it's in a little scruffy box for me to have a look through. Imagine someone buying a photo of you one day? Weird I know, but at the same time I find it really interesting, I feel like I'm reading someone's diary cos it's so personal.
What did they do after that photo was taken?
Who are they? Who took the photo? What was their life like?
And why the hell are these photos now being sold in this shop?!
I guess every photo tells a story.
This postcard is so cute, I just love the part that says,
"also hope you are a good boy at school".
I literally could have spent the whole day in this shop reading other people's postcards. Some of them dated back to the early 20's. That's crazy.
I know it's old fashioned, but lets face it, getting a postcard is SO much better than reading a facebook status about someone's holiday.
