When I was in Prague last May, I stopped by a used bookstore just a few blocks from my hotel. Toward the back of the store, I found stacks of what had to be hundreds of old photos. I got a little mesmerized looking through them. I probably spend more than an hour there, and found myself wondering about what happened to the people in the pictures. A few appear to be professionally taken, but most look like family photos. The owner of the bookshop said he started buying photo albums at what I gathered were yard sales, or the Czech equivalent of estate sales (there was a bit of a language barrier). He sold the photos for about 25 cents each, so I picked out a couple dozen that I found interesting.
Once I got home, I wasn’t really sure what to do with them. So I’ve had them scanned, and figure I’ll share them with you. Maybe if these float around the Internet a bit, someone might recognize a face or two, and give us some history about who we’re looking at.
