Monochrome Monday

Here's my contribution - luggage and kerosene lamp circa 1940's found at Murikami house, Steveston, BC, before the Japanese were sent to the interior of BC (Kootenay region) because of Pearl Harbour. Click to enlarge.

lovely photo! Love the old suitcases.....makes me think of my grandparent when they immigrated with all their little children from Holland in the 50's

How fascinating to come over & see this image, as I've actually seen it in real life, as I've been to Steveston many times & visted the the house in question.

I'm obviously slow on the uptake, as I've only just locked onto your photo blog, I wondered why I could never find your meme pictures on the other one - LOL!

That is a great shot!

Well done. I joined in too.

Beautiful shot!!! Love old suitcases. If only they could talk!

This is a most evocative image. I feel it would have worked well in sepia as well.

My parents didn't know what a blog is. I explained them some things and they were very happy when they saw their parents photos in my blog! The next blog they saw was yours the one with your generation photos... They were impressed and sent you their gongratulations for your blog and photos.
I regret I throw away an old suitcase my father in law gave me one day. It wasn't so old but it had its story...

This is a great image and plenty of history to go with it. A good start to the theme.

What a winning shot ... its sort of depressing knowing the owners most likely never got their possessions back ... and it reminds me of the photos in the Holocaust Museum .. very effect, Leslie!

I just discover this new contest at Aileni's.
Your post illustrates fabulously the theme. "Monochrome" as old pictures full of memory. Really perfect.

This photo stopped me in my tracks. There were Japanese internment camps in my state about 100 miles from my hometown...sad memories.
Lovely photo!
