A man brought them home and reunited families with their photos.”


Whether it is from a shuttered local portrait studio or boxes of pictures in your musty basement being lost to the ravages of time, each tells a story. The people in those pictures must be preserved, their history, adventures, and lives.


Excerpt on how pictures were reunited with their owners:
