The John Pollock Story

I found these photos on the side of the road in a pile marked "free."

When asked, the person who found them pulled them out of a shed they were left in on the property he had recently purchased.

John Pollock's whole story is here - the love notes his parents wrote, the houses they lived in, his kindergarden assignment, high school, and college diplomas.

The photos range from the early 1900s to the late 1980s - it feels strange to hold so much about a person, to own memories that do not belong to you.

If these belong to you, person who is searching for John Pollock, Margaret Hunter Pollock, Stanley Pollock, or Gretchen Pollock, I want to give them back.

But until then I will hold onto them for you...

  1. Words cannot describe my jealousy. The woman in the bathing suit is my favorite. ;) You should consider selling them.

  2. Wow, what a find!
    I hope you can locate friends or family members to return them to...it's sort of sad that someone's whole life can be kept in a box like that.
    The pictures look fascinating though! xx

  3. What a great slice of a life you acquired. I assume you have done some basic searches but have not found family. Best of luck.
