This is how some end up, I suppose. Worst-case scenario. The photos are ripped out and discarded, because no one knows who they are.
The book might fetch something at the antiuqe store, though.
I don't spend a lot of time at thift or antique stores, but I ht the locals a few times a year. One of the things I hate to see is a box or bowl of old photos. No names on the back, because why would anyone write that? The person who put the book together knew who they were.
In the next thirty-five pages we'll see some old pictures I've found, restored as best as I can.
