After the Fact-The Baker Family 7
Some people take their pictures home and paste them into the family album. Some people throw their pictures in a drawer and get to it when they get to it. This page from the baker family album is the back side of the last post. On this one sheet of paper there are dated photographs from 1930 to 1936. In the digital age, people download their pictures to a computer, maybe they post them on Flickr. It makes me wonder if we are entering an era without family photos, at leas the physical kind. And when computers crash, or when the photo sharing service goes out of business, and there is no reason to think that they won't disappear when the next thing comes along, what then?
