I submitted this post on October 31st, 2011 but I guess it didn't get approved until a whole lot later. Because of the delay, most of my photos aren't going to show up. I couldn't afford to renew my website this year. Here is a link to my photobucket album which has a lot of these pictures: http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v39/bentmywookie/Lucilles%20Suitcase/Original Post:
Since it's Halloween, I've finally decided to share several of my antique photos with you. I know that a lot of people think that antique photos are creepy, but I think they're just poignant and tend to have more personality. This post mainly mainly contains photos that were taken around the late 19th / early 20th century, though I can't put exact dates on any of them.
One neat thing about this particular type of photograph is that it can leave its imprint upon the backs of other photographs if they're left together long enough. I call these "ghost photos." If you look closely, you can see that there's actually traces of two different photos: a child with a tricycle, and then a photo of a girl which is slanted towards the left. I'll explain more in a second.( Collapse )
