Tropic of Capricorn


FOUND by Isabell
I opened up the used copy of Tropic of Capricorn, which I just got today in the mail, and stuck inside was this photograph. It’s faded, but I can’t tell when it was taken based on the clothes or hair- maybe the 90s? There’s nothing written on the back of the photograph. Because of the sexual nature of the book, I like to think it was the guy’s copy. Plus, he has a naughty little smile, like he has a secret. The girl looks way too innocent to be reading Henry Miller. I do wonder who these people are, and whether they’re still together.

Treasured Moment

 

FOUND under the autumn leaves on a tree lined street in Clapham, South London
“A beautiful moment where a proud papa looks down adoringly on his newborn daughter (I’m assuming this is the relationship). She almost fits entirely into his two hands! On the back a child, presumably an older version of the babe in the photo, has written: This I will definitely keep. Very sad to think that she was not able to hold on to the picture. I almost think it may have been thrown away in anger, perhaps?” -Sallie
