10 Years of Shorpy

I lurked around this site for a couple months before "joining" ten years ago this week. My first comment came a couple months later, as evidenced here.

You'd think a decade of clicking through old photos would result in a rueful accounting of wasted time, but I count the hours spent rummaging through this glorious archive as an investment in our collective history. The photos are curated with technical expertise, humor, and a sly topicality. The comments are often insightful and witty and the disagreements are usually settled with civility and thoughtfulness.

I'm happy to be a citizen of this community and offer thanks to Team Shorpy for their efforts and persistence.

Here's to ten more years!

I love the Robin Hood shirt he's wearing!

The Flop

Robstown is where Texas Hold 'Em poker originated.
