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.

Here is an example of a Kodak Advertisement
December 15, 1916

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

Happy Valentine's Day!

Wow! What a treat! I can hardly wait to see what you will show us from these magazines! I don't suppose the magazine is still being published. I certainly haven't heard of it. Oh to have that look back in time... you are one lucky girl!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I want your husband to write a book: how-to buy your wife the perfect present. You're so lucky, fM! Of course, I'm sure this is because you married a man smart enough to realize how lucky he is too. :-)
