If Looks Could Kill

My friend and I found this wedged between two tables at a local bar. It was 80′s night karaoke. Someone was singing Heart’s “If Looks Could Kill.”

Gone Muskie Fishing

Back in the early 90s I worked for the Stevens Point Parks Department, keeping downtown Main Street and the Square clean. I found a lot of weird stuff working there (you wouldn’t believe how many bullets I found), but photos are always something I feel the need to hold on to. I found this picture … Continued

Baby Between Sheds

My friend Amy found an old photo album and she gave it to me after I showed her Found Magazine #1. This little girl’s name is Jacqueline and the album follows her through the 3rd grade. In this photo she is 6 months old.

Ladies’ Man

I found this treasure walking in the Potrero area of San Francisco. It was at the corner of Harrison and 24th.  My friends and I find it totally charming and hilarious. We’re laying bets on the era it’s from.

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!
