A source for old photos....

Hello friends. Lately I have become a fan of Pinterest and as a result have discovered some really good blogs and websites. One that I really love is The Cabinet Card Gallery. The author of this blog not only shares old cabinet card photos, but also offers categories whereby you can search for babies, bicycles, women, men, Christmas, and so on. He, or she, researches the history of not only the people in the photos, but also the photographers who took them, and also provides a history of cabinet cards themselves. Did you know that these were initially employed for landscapes rather than portraits? Oh, and you can also follow this site via email to receive each day's newly posted photo. Here are a couple of photos from this wonderful site:

I hope you're having a wonderful day!
