My Valentine Gift
For Valentine's Day, I received three years worth of The Amateur Photographer's Weekly (1916, 1917, and 1918). The magazines are in perfect condition and contain wonderful old articles, advertisements, and photographs.
Readers of the footnoteMaven blog know that I collect vintage and antique photographs and most things associated with them. I have a very large resource library for dating old photographs and am working on a new blog that will cater to these interests called Shades Of The Departed (not yet ready for prime time). I am also writing a book about one specific category of my photograph collection.
The information contained in these magazines is invaluable to my research and very entertaining to boot. I will be sharing the wonderful things I find in the coming year.

Thank You Mr. fM for indulging me. I know how lucky I am.
