    I love how even in such a classy and historic photo Louies eyes still look like they are about to burst.

      Do pic have to be significant or just historic (old)?

      Or is there another thread for old photos?

                    I'm a big fan of WW1 pictures.
                    Mainly because it is so hard to fathom just how dreadful it would have been.

                        There's a thread that had a lot of the old Perth pics. Search engine doesn't help much when you enter "Perth" though for some reason.
                        Can you help with foster care?
