The hunt for old photos or any information about our house is still going strong. I guess I can't say the hunt is going strong.. but my desire to hunt is. I had no idea how addictive it would be. I figured after scoring old photos from the family that lived here in the 40's and 50's that it would satisfy us for a while, but it really only made me want more. My mission is to go back even further in time.. the house was built around 1898 so we have a lot of time to cover! I want to find more photos from the O'Sullivan family, who lived here from 1904 to 1917 (see this post for some back story). We have only seen one, but there has to be more out there somewhere and i'm determined to find them.
Since I was in an old photo mood, I searched through old pictures on etsy for inspiration, and each one struck me so hard.. even though they aren't of our home, I felt the feeling I felt when we saw our old phots for the first time. They suck me in and I get lost in every detail. All of these are exactly what I hope we find one day.. little black and white portals into the past.
