A haunting collection of antique found photographs, with evocative inscriptions that bring these lost personal moments to life.

Just a great books.

Many of the photos have sweet noted written on the back.

There are some real saucy comments too.

A great way to spend the afternoon.

I just happened to read a review of this book and decided I had to read it.

Some of the pictures were funny or touching but there are several pages of pictures of a young girl that tells a story about her life that was so sad.

I really liked this book. I've checked it out twice.

When books say they are haunting etc, I am a bit of a cynic. But this absolutely is - especially a chapter of photos of a girl called Janet Lee. Astonishing and emotional stuff.
