I found a USB thumb drive on the ground in the parking lot at Lowes that had scanned images on it. This picture is one from a series of photos of this couple, all titled “Ma and Pop.” It’s clear that they were together throughout the 60s, 70s, and 80s and had at least one … Continued
I found this photo lying in the street on my way to college a few years ago, soaking wet in a puddle beside a rubbish bin. I think it probably dates from the 1950s or 60s. It seems such a shame someone would want to throw him away!
Found this 18″ x 24″ poster in an alley near my house. It had been rained on and was starting to disintegrate.
I found this Polaroid face down in the trunk of a car at the junk yard while looking for some parts. When I turned it over, all I could think was LOOK AT THAT HAIR! I graduated in 1984 and it appears that they went to the prom four years later and I wondered how … Continued

I found this at the custom silkscreening shop I work at.
At work today an e-mail went out to all staff warning that the Lost and Found box was going to be dumped. In the e-mail was a list of completely random items (gold earring with “precious” written on it, 3 maps of Africa, a stuffed M&M doll, etc), but one item really stood out as … Continued
