Inspiration for The World’s Photo Album

When I was growing up I enjoyed looking at several oversized, five pound photo albums my Dad had put together, which went all the way back to his rock and roller days in the 50s and 70s. It felt groovy traveling back in time via those photographs, to decades when everything looked so different.

Now that I’m older, I store my old photos in boxes or on my computer and friends and I look through them. Inevitably, one story will lead to another, and before I know it an hour or more of fun has passed while looking at old pictures.

The World’s Photo Album is the same kind of experience; a place where pictures bring memories to life. I hope you enjoy this site, and feel free to submit your own memorable photos.
