About This Group

The focus of this group is antiques and historic items/buildings.

Time frame: ancient through the 1970s. Nothing newer than that.

Here are a brief resume of the rules. PLEASE CHECK FULL RULES before submitting your pictures. Thank you.

ALWAYS include information about the antique being featured (what it is, where it was photographed, approx. age/date of manufacture, etc.). Antiques are interesting; let’s share knowledge along with the capture.

REMEMBER – it is always the final decision of the hosts whether an image is accepted or not.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

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 1970.

Entries can be heritage listed building and recognized historical landmarks such as 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 1970 are accepted, because these photos would be considered a treasure, heirloom, antique
