Found Under the Floorboards

The above image was scanned from a 35mm slide that I found in a hole in the floorboards of my house. Judging from the car, the picture appears to have been taken in the early 50's. Our house was built in 1890 so this picture comes from around the midpoint of the house's history. I have no idea who took the picture or where it was taken. Found photographs are all about obscured identity and death. I wonder if this moment is still alive in anyone's memory.

Massive amounts of found photos here and here

This is very cool. I love flipping through old flea market photos and wondering who and from when.... and if someone is missing that old family photo. They can be really spooky like captured ghosts...
