I used to believe that I was an old soul because of my fondness for everything old, classical or vintage. As a teenager, I don’t mind listening to the tunes of Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole and other Motown Artists. Somehow I was drawn to this soothing and nostalgic genre.
In the recent years, my love for the old intensified with the advent of vintage photography. I particularly like themes that include nature, women, dresses, writing and food. Staring at these photos literally take me back in time, the simplicity of life then. The faint colors really appeal to my eyes as dainty and delicate.
I’d like to share some of my favorite vintage photos to include typewriters which I found on the net.
But one of my favorite vintage things are typewriters. We had an old typewriter when I was in high school and that was my favorite “gadget” back in the 80’s. I love hearing the sound of the keys being tapped and that familiar *ting* when you’ve reached the end of the page. If I could only see, touch and use one now, that would totally take me back to when I first began writing 🙂
Are there any obsolete tool or old gadget you would like to use again today?
