All of these photos have been found for free on the ground at the auction- what to do with them?

I've just been collecting them in an old hat box. I also found some vintage yearbooks at the auction, but I did manage to sell those on Ebay. Posted: 1:32 pm on February 18th

Check out my project the hope chest with broken veneer top. Make a collage with photos, I only used black and white, a vintage glove, and covered it with heavy plastic (2.97) yard at Walmart. Then I stapled it tight under the lid. Good luck. Posted: 12:39 pm on February 18th
RustyDiva writes: Wow ~ lucky you ~ free?! I always look at old photos at thrift stores and wonder about the people in them. I seem to be drawn to black and whites from the 40's and 50's or older but I have no idea what I would do with them. If you were a dealer, you could use them for display or if you made greeting cards they would be cool to use for the front. Beyond that I have no idea except look at them and smile! Good luck.
