There is a trunk in my great grandmother's garage. Old books, old pictures, lots of dust and growing things... I needed some hand sanitizer after... lets just say that. Found lots of cool stuff though. It was a goldmine.
Now some photography tips for a situation like this. Do some overall shots, not as many as for cemeteries. When the trunk was first open I took some photos of what it looked like when we found it. Then progressive pictures of things that were in there. In some cases I took photos down at the garage then more detailed ones when we brought the goodies up to the house.
Also... when going through old pictures its a good idea to have an older family member there with you.
Ok so here are some really old ones... I believe they're tintypes? no idea what year though...
No idea who these peeps are or what year these are from...
Hey look a bible! With stuff inside!

|I won't bore you with the rest. Unless you would like...|
