Antique photographs for sale from the 1940s, by individuals and dealers.

Antique photos give you a glimpse into life as it was back then (or they make you wonder what it might have been like). If it’s a picture of a person or persons, you wonder where the subject/s in the photo lived – what they were thinking when the photo was taken – how they were feeling – what they were going off to do afterwards. Old cars, old buildings – some that no longer exist.

While you’re staring at it, studying every detail, it’s easy to get lost in it, easy to find yourself being transported, connected.

Owning such an item - a piece of visual history - is a way of keeping it alive. The links below will open a description of the photographs for sale from the 1940s on eBay.
