What is is about vintage photos that instantly creates a romantic atmosphere? I love looking at photos of family and friends from the 20s, 30s, 40s, and up. Unfortunately my family don't have many, otherwise they'd be all framed and hung on the walls. Neil's mom has unearthed some lovely ones that will make it on a wall sooner rather than later. 

I love looking at the expressions, clothes, styles. It seems that back then people dressed better and put more effort into their appearance. When I look at their face expressions, I wonder what they are thinking about, I wonder what were the things that concerned them, I wonder what was happening in their lives at the time when the photo was taken.

 I love the little curl on this girls forehead. Apparently she was 13 when the photo was taken - she looks so much older, don't you think?

She's beautiful and so elegant! I would have guessed her for her early 20s.
