It's Friiiiiiiiiiiiiday, we MADE it! How's the weekend looking to you? I have to run out the door to some estate sales and then my sister's birthday lunch (happy two-five, Sus!), but I wanted to leave you with a couple photos from my online meanderings before I hang up my blogging spurs until Monday.
Last week, I told you, I was having a great deal of trouble finding the kinds of photos I wanted on Flickriver when it was my good fortune to stumble across this ebay seller's online vintage and antique photography shop. The Primitive Fold specializes in wonderful condition daguerrotypes, tin types, cabinet cards-- all manner of 19th century photography, and on into the 20th. The unifying factor here for the inventory? Obviously, that they're photoraphs, but also, that the collection boasts a carefully curated selection of some of the most interesting portrait subjects I think I've ever seen! This was the online equivalent of coming across a cigar box or wooden crate at an estate sale or antique mall and NOT ONLY are all the photos in great condition for their age, but there are no clunkers, just solid, amazing pictures, one after the next.
Like I said, I have to get out the door, but if you like what you see, pop over to The Primitive Fold's ebay shop. I only warn you that you may spend the rest of your day looking through the entries and peering into someone's own life in say the year 1880. It's addictive!
Have a great Friday, find great stuff at the sales, and I will see you on Monday! Take care! Til then.
