    I love old photo postcards (mostly the b&w sepia) especially of NH. I've been collecting them (don't have a lot, but I like to pick some up when I see something cool) and this is a great find, thanks for the site!

    Here is a postcard of the stone house my mother lived in (till she and her sisters all ran away from home together) in Chester Depot, VT.

    Default Elms

    The buildings are beautiful, but what strikes me are the beautiful Elm trees that line the street. You can't see that anywhere that I know of anymore. All lost to Dutch Elm disease.

    I upload my photos to my Fotki site. They resize the images for viewing for me. Then I get them here in a post by doing

    [img] URL of the JPG file [/img]

    with no spaces.

    There are also a few free/demo programs that can help with this - an easy one is Picasa from Google - http://www.google.com/picasa/

    Works on 2000/XP/Vista, no mac version yet. If you are on a mac, iPhoto can handle this as well.

    Failing in that, you can email pictures to me at ecomalley...gmail.com, I will reduce them, and send them back.

    Replace the ... with an @ sign.
