Jesse just emailed me a link to this series of posts on Mental Floss's blog, Talking Pictures. Each post showcases a collection of found flea market photographs all centered around a theme. Some posts are humorous - Glamour Shots, Hide This Please; some are uplifting - Love and Marriage; and some are heartbreaking - The Dead, Life During Wartime. The series I found the most profound,  though, was Times of Trouble. Definitely check it out. I'm a sucker for vintage photos, but the sentiments on the back, as well as the beautiful handwritten script make these some of the best flea market finds I've ever seen.
