About the Collection

It is sometimes said that photographs capture a fragment of the soul of the photographed. This is, of course, complete humbug. Still, it cannot be denied there is something truly magical about these mementos of days and people long gone by.

‘Sepia’ is a site displaying my personal collection of old photographs. At the moment there are over 450 photographs in my collection, the earliest dating from the 1860’s and the newest ones from around the 1940’s.

I own an actual physical copy of each photograph displayed as a part of my collection on this site. It is not my intention to post photographs from other sources here.

The datings of the photographs are usually just estimates and may contain errors, since I am by no means an expert of dating old photographs. If you find an error with the datings, let me know. Corrections are gladly accepted!
