Time has a way of slipping away quickly. We live, We love, We laugh, and then We Die. All the things we strive for and those memories eventually get lost in time. This blog attempts to showcase lost photos of people and places. Many of the individuals and the places are not identified. This is my way of connecting with others searching for a bit of their own history. May the Ancestors help us in discovering more and making that connection.

Root Digger Antique Photo Find, People and Their Modes of Transportation
I visited my ancestral homelands of Havelock-Harlowe-and New Bern, North Carolina in September 2016. While there, I visited Clark's Antiques located in Havelock, North Carolina. I was hoping I would find photos of African Americans and people of color with the thought that they could possibly be related to me. None of the photos were, however, the historical aspect of finding photos from a different time period is exciting to me.
What I have discovered from my searches, is that a majority of the photos I find are not from the location of where the photos were taken. Many of the ones I found were from PA and not NC, however, it is possible that these families and individuals migrated to NC. With further investigation, the knowledge of these peoples migration, will be known.
Here are two photos that I love. I chose to post these photos because of the modes of transportation the individuals are using. I am unsure of the dates of these photos, and am thinking they are the early part of the 1900's.
