from the archive 2

Collected images found languishing in my desk drawer.

John Thomson. Stone Animals, Ming Tombs. c. 1871-72. National Library of Scotland.
 I've owned this postcard well over a decade, and mailed all my other copies out over the years. It joins a small and select group of cards that will probably never be mailed.

The caption is the image below.
This photograph I found in an antique store in the midwest, and used for a change of address card when relocating to New England. I've always wondered where it was taken, why Louise had a tiny white picket fence, and where they went. Sorry about the coffee stain. That's most likely my fault.
