- About Us
Welcome to Pages From the Past. We are so glad you found our history website!
Our passion for vintage articles actually grew from our Ebay business where we specialized in unique books dealing in American History, Genealogy, and State and Local Histories. It so happened that we acquired a large collection of magazines from libraries that were transitioning into the digital world. As we read through these 19th and 20th century volumes we became fascinated with the history which resonated from the print and how they captured the essence of the people and culture of the day.
We have been asked many times why we separate the articles from the magazines themselves. One reason is that many of these publications which come from libraries do not have the original covers and are not intact. Secondly, and very important is that most people purchase magazines for a specific topic or article, which leaves many wonderful pieces of history discarded.
The preparation it takes to find, scan and detail such ephemera is quite exhausting but also very rewarding. It is actually quite exciting when we locate new vintage periodicals and start mining them for gems documenting modern day history. We love when we are able to find that special article or vintage print that has genealogical or personal significance.
So enjoy browsing through our collection and be sure to check out the categories and subcategories for each topic. Please contact us if you have any questions or if we can be of any help.
