Old Photos

I was in a second-hand store the other day and there was a big basket of old, mostly black and white, photos (below). Seemed rather sad. Reminded me of Blade Runner and how they had photos to represent their pasts, but of course the photos weren't really of their past since they didn't have pasts. I have been told, however, by the owner of the second-hand store that these are usually extra photos that the families still have copies of, so, no loss. Still interesting to be able to buy photographic stills of others' pasts.
