Let me overwhelm you for a moment

05 April 09

Yesterday I found the best flickr photostream ever: superbomba scans in old found photos which are hilarious, bizarre or just plain charming. Each one of them tells a story though, which is what I like best (and there are some pretty banging outfits and haircuts too).

This is the most image-heavy post ever, but I couldn't edit it down, there are too many gems. I got a bit carried away and went through all 95 pages believe it or not. Hope you have broadband!

Haha, these are great!
I particularly like the one of the little girls eating the cherries/grapes and the one of the boy with the shadow over him. Some of them are hilarious!

THANK YOU SO MUCH for this!!
Magnificent. I’m working on my new book at the moment I’m taking photos and giving them a vintage feel (it’s a local oriented book of scenes in Northern Ireland). I’ve been scowering about for vintage photos that actually looked great, so I’m bookmarking this. Great timing.
How great is the little girl in the feild? xx
