Before we start, I should mention that my friend and I decided to postpone the last yard sale of the season by a week. It gives us a bit more time to prepare, and it’ll also be nice to take this weekend mostly off. It’s a bit of a gamble not yard sailing on what will be a unseasonably warm day, but the next weekend should be decent still, and the cooler weather might help sell some of the nice fall fashion clothing I’ve found recently. For now, the plan is to do the yard sale on Sunday October 1st, but if the weather turns sour the date could be changed again.
These photos came from that multi-million dollar house I’ve mentioned in three previous posts. Those guys just threw out a little bit of everything! All in all, I saved enough photos to almost fill up your average sock drawer.
The oldest were probably these old cabinet photos.
My favourites though were probably the ones from WWII. Click and zoom in for a better look! There’s a lot of neat details you’d miss otherwise.
This message was written on the back of the one colourized photo.
Some of the pictures look to have been taken in the desert. Maybe they were taken during the North African campaign, in which Canada played a significant part.
I thought the guy at the center of this picture looked a bit like Winston Churchill. This person does have a similar collection of medals, and Churchill did make an appearance in North Africa in 1942, so in theory it could be him. What do you think?
There’s one more part of this series to share! Otherwise, I hope to come across some more big rich people hauls soon.
