Strangers, circa 1963

I found these prints at a scavenging center back home. Two are dated 1963; the rest are unmarked. They were in a basket with a note that said, "For anyone who will treasure them as I no longer do."

what a treasure.

What Erin said. The word melancholy keeps running through my head now. These make me almost unbearably curious for some reason.

that kind of makes me sad. But I'm glad that instead of destroying them, they let someone else find them.

I love the wording of that note. So much is implied. Stories, heartbreak, nostalgia. Fascinating people.
