  • how/where search for this photo?

    i saw a photo many years ago, prob. 60's, in a photography book, thought it was the family of man, but it's not, i looked there.

    i seem to think it was in poland, post wwII. a 4 yr old boy sitting on front steps, wearing cap, long coat, wornout shoes, clutching a new pair to his chest and looking up with an expression of unforgettable joy. (looked a little like the right side uncle in the uncles challenge)

    i did a google image search to no avail; does any one else have any suggestions on how or where to search? or even, has anyone else ever seen this photo?

    That's a tough one. I've not seen the photo, and all I can suggest is try altavista's image seach, it has many sources google does not. Additionally, try, since they own a lot of famous photos.

        Photo that has physical damage
        by Brucemm
        I guess I'd like a lot of new members here, I've been drawn to the forum as I've been asked to "do what I can" to an old photo.
        My first reaction was "sorry can't help", but then....

        My biggest issue right at the start is that the photo (guess...

        Brown Cast on Photo
        by jannetie
        Hi, brown cast on photo is putting it mildly; what you can see is pretty much a ghost image. I think this might be a high school proof photo (b/w). It's the only photo two girls have of their father, at least at that age; I don't know much else except that the young man's picture never appeared in his...

        Date of photo?
        by leogabe
        This photo was found in an old house in the southcentral region of Pennsylvania (Adams County to be exact). I'm presuming the family owned the house in which they are pictured. There was only one owner from 1870 until 1940's. The older gentleman in the middle, if he is the owner, would have been around...

        I have visited the forum for several years but have never posted. I have learned much from visiting. I am interested in your suggestions as to how best to clean up the team photo at this link. I started with a photo since I am not able to obtain a scan of the original. My effort to date is included...
