The theme for this week's photo challenge is Vintage. I don't own many things that qualify as vintage, but this item is the oldest possession I have. It is a book titled They Had to See Paris by Homer Croy. This copy was printed in 1926 - ninety years ago.
This book was given to me by one of my favorite high school teachers back in 2009. During a visit, for he was not only one of my teachers, but also a lifelong friend of my family's, he gave me this book after I shared some stories of my most recent trip to Europe, which included several stories about my experience in Paris.
I've never read this book, but it sits proudly on my bookshelf in remembrance of him. He passed in 2014. He was one of the most generous and big hearted individuals I have ever known.
Out of curiosity, what is the oldest item you own? As always, thanks for stopping by!
