I like to read other people's mail but not for the personal information. No! I don't for the letterhead like this from 1930 and the Hotel Abraham Lincoln in Springfield Illinois. Demolished now but once a pillar of the downtown. Law book found last weekend. #foundinbooks #foundpaper #bookmarks #brooksbrothers #bullwinkel #greatnames #fashion #lincoln #architecturelovers #illinois #Springfield #collectables #estatesale # #found #ephemera #hotels #letterhead #1930

A very nice family allowed me to purchase a box of old letters that they couldn't toss but couldn't keep - they were happy to release to an urban archeologist. Swipe right to see one of many documents I found. #found #foundpaper #deed #documents #legal #cool #urbanarcheology #family #memoirs #history #land #cuyahoga #ohio #1835 #oldpaper

I was Jones-Ing while on vacation because there were no estate sales to dig through, so I went beach-combing instead. #found #beach #shells #sand #ocean #Atlantic #barnacle #sun #fun #beachcomber #florida

Before the high fashion footwear Jimmy Chew was a traveling school assembly in 1932. The mission was to teach kids good dental habits. Must search for film on this puppet tooth and his master. #found #puppet #dentalcare #dental #medicine #tooth #performance #school #1930s #dentist #humor #funny #creepy #notjimmychoo #jimmychew
