Old China

wretchedshekels

I remember being a child and being told, ” You can dig to China.”  Well let me tell you, to a seven year old boy, it can really spark the imagination!  I have always been fascinated by the people and the culture of the east.  I found these photos thru a blog at https://www.flickr.com/photos/ralphrepo_photolog/ .  I hope you enjoy and please do let me know your favorites.  If these are popular, I have found a treasure trove of old Chinese photos which I plan to put up in the coming week or two!

  1. My uncle had an album. My cousin digitized some of the images. And then all the cousins puzzled over who and where. He had dementia and we could only guess. Old photos need a lot of care. The image will outlast memory.
