Vintage Photos on Pinterest that Will Make You Smile

476px-Taylor,_Elizabeth_10Whether it’s a recipe for how to make a homemade water blob or an article on how to set up a S’mores buffet at a wedding, a search on Pinterest can yield incredible results.


The gang here at ScanMyPhotos is always (p)inspired by what we find on the visually dynamic social site, but we wanted to take things a step further. Since we love to preserve and observe historical photos, we did a search for vintage photos on Pinterest and were not disappointed with the results.


You could easily spend hours scrolling through all the old photos and stories that people have pinned (we did!), but, after a while, we discovered that the best photos were featured in articles and blogs. If you really want to smile at the past, check out the warm-n-fuzzy vintage photo articles we found on Pinterest.

Although it’s commonly used as a type of digital magazine, Pinterest can also be used as a place to easily store, access, and organize your photos. If you’re looking for an online place to store and access your scanned photos, why not create a Pinterest board? You can organize it by time or event, and even opt to set your board to “private” where only you (and/or the pinners you want to share the board with) can see it.
