going historical

I've recently come across some older photographs and slides. Part of this sign are 440 slides taken in Germany and France during the early 1940's. This is during World War 2, although looking at the photos you wouldn't be able to tell that a war was going on. I'm currently in the process of cleaning the glass carriers, and trying to find replacements for the few broken ones. Then I'll start the process of scanning and uploading them.

I also found 8 old family portraits taken at the turn of the last century. I can't be positive with the identity of everyone in the photos, but I'm fairly certain they are of my great great grandparents. They are albumen prints on cardboard. I have created a new Flickr account to post all of these found photographs and slides, and named it going historical. I haven't had a chance to go through all the photographs and slides I've found, so I've got plenty of material that might find it's way onto Flickr. For now check out these turn of the century portraits of my family. There are descriptions under each photograph on the Flickr page.
