My antique show finds

Article about: I picked up a fixed bail. It has had a hard life but the price was right. I also got around 200 german photos. A Hawaii dollar and some Hitler stamps a 50 cal. bullet. It was a good weekend.

    I think in many ways the photos are really the best find of all......you can learn so much by studying original pics! I have in my collection 4 snapshots that my grandfather took at the end of the war showing German POW's including one SS soldier who is glaring at the camera....I get a very odd feeling looking at that photo because I know he was looking directly at my grandfather! If I had a scanner, I'd post them here!

    Bravo I agree looking at some of these photos you can see real human emotions. alot more then just the studio shots. If you can I would like to see your grandfathers photos. Gary

    Gary, I'll see what I can do about photographing them. I think perhaps if I can lay them flat under a piece of flat glass, they should copy okay. The edges are curled up, but they were like then when I got them all those years ago. The only photo that really bothered me was a dead German soldier that had been covered by hay. It surprised me that my grandfather would have taken a picture like that as when I knew him he was a very gentle soul, but who knows what horrors he saw? He only talked about his wartime experiences very briefly and most of the stories were humorous anecdotes.

    Cheers,
    Tim
