What might have become...

While finding for a book at the library yesterday, I came upon an old 1957 publication and found this page autographed by the people who presumably read this book way back then. The book itself was a gift to the library. Their signatures are from 1959! Nearly half a century back. Wonder what happened to them. Do anyone really collect old letters or papers anymore?

i love collecting antique memorabilia, be it old records, old ads, old badges, old mags/books, old MAS tickets, old cameras and films, even letters. you name it. history has never been so enticing.

Thats pretty awsome!
It's so funny to try and picture people from way back then, what their lives were like, who they were....

Hi GP:

That's cool! I'm glad you pay attention to things like that. Just think: You bridge the gap from 1950 to 2050...

Hmmm.. I dont collect anything, but i do seem to have a mid sized collection of old watches! Not only my own, but my dads, my grandpa's, some assorted female watches (god knows who they belong to). A lot of these brand names I have never heard of in my life!

Hey Gp, i dunno abt ur other readers, but this template is getting pretty boring..

No, emails have ruined letters. I have a book from 1947 that was a gift to someone and had an inscription in the front. It makes it so special.

[shalini] i love collecting stuff too...now more than ever im finding for old books in Payless books...I have one by Isaac Asimov from 1959...

[Mona] Yes, i wonder what happened to them...its been so long...I bet they would be thrilled to know that their gift is still here.

[Mike] Hey bro. I think we have to appreciate our past because the earth is fragile than ever. Do you collect old stuff too?
