About Vintage Photos
I have a huge collection of vintage pictures that I have purchased from eBay and other sources over the years. Many of these are from entire collections of 35mm slides that I purchased. This page is an attempt to catalog and share the more interesting pictures I find as I sort through them.
I’m always fascinated by what photographers from yesteryear captured. And its always interesting to see how much things have changed, or not changed, around the world. Many of my pictures are of specific sites, places and things. But there are many that are of every day life. Christmas, Birthdays, new cars (and TVs!) There are pictures of vacations around the world, trips to Disneyland and other amusement parks, and pictures from famous and exotic locations such as the Eiffel Tower, Hawaii, Cuba China, and many, many other exotic locations. Please comment on individual posts as you find pictures you like!
Also note that the vast majority of these pictures are unlabeled. I will attempt to identify them as best I can, but will frequently need help. So if something is misidentified, please do not hesitate to correct me in the comments!

All slides undergo minimal processing. Sometimes this means that there is dirt in the picture despite my best efforts to clean them. Keep in mind that many of these are seeing the light of day for the first time in decades and were frequently stored in less then optimal circumstances.
Also keep in mind that rarely was the photographer a professional. So some pictures will be under/over exposed, may have color issues, will have cropping issues, or will have other issues. Either way, please enjoy EVintagePhoto.com as we take you on a trip to yesteryear!
