Old Photos


Old photos acquired from around the internet.  I think they are fascinating.  Maybe you do too?

Black boy reading with some onlookers.  Little Black Sambo was originally written in 1899 and was a favorite book at the time.  It was only later when Sambo became a racist term that the book became controversial.  The story was well loved because the little boy was resourceful and outwitted some tigers.  He was well dressed and smart.  Like many other books at the time Sambo was crudely drawn in the image of a picaninny.  The book was later changed to Sam and the Tigers and images changed to reflect a more realistic looking black child.   A bit of African American history for you.

  1. Hi I just looked at your post, and would like to invite you to visit my blog where I have posted several old photos that you may find interesting. I am a collector of old photos, I’ve got several albums full of old photos, as well as a journal that talks about the struggles of the vietnam war, and a diary that speaks about the bombing of Pearl Harbor. I enjoy the feeling of traveling in time when I look at pictures of the past as weird as that may sound lol. Thanks for sharing, hope to hear from you soon.
