I noticed a beautiful Normandy/Omaha Beach related US photo album on Ebay a few weeks back and ended up missing the auctions end. Well, tonight I was looking around again as usual, and found the same photos being sold as singles from another seller. At first I figured they were just copies, but I took a close look at the photo paper edging, and found that they are indeed IMO to be the same photos from the album.
So in short, this guy bought a wonderful piece of COMPLETE history (if they are good period photos) and proceeded to rip out the photos and sell them individually for profit. Splitting them up forever, losing the captions, personal history, and historical significance of the album as a whole. There were some nice rare photos in there of Omaha Beach landings/etc.
Sorry if this doesn't bother some people, but it's something that really makes my blood boil when I see.......so please, if anyone has a complete album....don't go splitting it up to make a few bucks!! They aren't making anymore of this stuff.
