The focus of this group is antiques. AND I am very flexible in what I accept – meaning if it is old and looks great in your image – I will probably accept it.
Time frame: 1700 through the 1960s – however we do accept entries that are much older, unique and historical.
We love to see chandeliers, furniture, time pieces, jewelry, vases, tapestries, statues, and tools; granny’s wedding gown, great-granddad’s mustache cup, granddad’s opera glasses, and mother’s wooden rocking horse handed down from one generation to the next. Fountains, ornate staircases, carriages, and more! Items manufactured before 1960.
Entries can be heritage listed building and recognized historical landmarks; homes, horse stables, churches, theatres, covered bridges, and other structures built within our specified time frame, even older if you find them. Trains, trams, vehicles, and also boats accepted within our guidelines.
Images or Photos of people are accepted in the following categories:
1. Photos or drawings of people that ARE accepted are those in antique or vintage dress or those that are re-enactors. the important part of accepting images of PEOPLE is what they are WEARING and the role they are playing in the re-enactment.
2. Books, catalogs, cards, paintings or drawings that depict people in clothing from an earlier time.
3. Old photographs of people that are clearly from before 1960 are accepted, because these photos would be considered a treasure, heirloom, antique
