In the meantime...

While we are waiting to get some information from our last few vendors to show you what you can expect to see at the convention, I thought I would highlight a blog I have been reading, or rather viewing, called Shorpy.

According to their info -, History in HD is a vintage photography blog featuring thousands of high-definition images from the 1850s to 1950s. The site is named after Shorpy Higginbotham, a teenage coal miner who lived 100 years ago."

This high school graduation photo is from "Washington, D.C., circa 1910. "Eastern High School." Points of interest in this unusually detailed portrait include caps and insignia of the High School Cadet Corps, Company F, and a cat."

They put up new photos nearly every day and they are all fascinating!
