Wordless Wednesday~~Back of images are fun to explore, too

While on a recent trip to Upper New York I went "picking" through some old "antique" shops. I found some nice old photographs. Some have a patient stamp of ca.1889.

When storing photographs for future generations, take a few minutes and write, on the back of each image, vital information. The traditional: who; what; where and when, would be the best inscription.

Take a look at the fine advertisement on the back of the image below. Notice that someone, at some time, wrote the name "Clay Nutting."

If you happen to know this fine gentleman who may have lived in the towns mentioned on the back of his photograph, send me a note.
Best wishes on your adventures.
