Historic Photograph Art

Ben and I celebrated 8 years of marriage on Tuesday.  Eight years!  That seems crazy.  Several weeks ago, I was wandering through a local consignment shop and spotted an interesting black and white print of old barns and a butte in the background.

Historic-Montana-Print-at-BarI flipped it over and it said it was a historic photo of the town Ben grew up in.  How perfect!  I bought it and saved it until Tuesday.

Adding meaningful art to our home has always been my goal.  This sweet photo is the perfect piece above the bar area.

Historic-Montana-Print-Above-BarThough I gave this as an anniversary gift, an old photo would also make a thoughtful Father’s day gift.  A google search has tons of options.  Like this St. Paul scene:

Or Minneapolis with horse-drawn carriages.

Of course, don’t print a photo with copyright, but there are options.  Or you could photograph a special place and turn it to black and white to look more reminiscent of times past.

  1. Cool pic! And a lucky find!
    Ironically, just last week I ordered by husband a black and white map print of his home city. Now if it would only arrive before Father’s Day!
