This I Believe: I Believe In Old Photographs

Apr 12, 2018

A picture is worth a thousand words, and it also captures a lifetime of history. One single photograph can capture the essence of a culture: the outfits, the cars, the houses, the lifestyle. You can listen to old stories of how your great-grandparents met, or how your great-grandmother came over on a boat and worked night and day to support herself. But those stories don’t feel nearly as real as seeing the images that captured such moments. And I believe nothing brings a family together like sharing memories of the past.
