Swap Meet Find
« on: December 10, 2007, 12:57:12 AM »
Last year my wife spotted this nicely framed, very interesting photo at a stall at our local Swap Meet. She grabbed me and said, "Isn't that Boris Karloff?" I bought it frame and all for $12. However, when I got it home and removed it from the frame to scan and share with the UMA, I was disappointed to discover that it was a page removed from a magazine and mounted on cardboard, not an actual photo.

I guess the seller felt a little guilty because  at the same time he said, "Since you're a Karloff fan, I'll give you this." He handed me a plastic wrapped lobby card for West of Shanghai in Spanish.

Neither of these items is spectacular, but it was fun finding them both at a Swap Meet.
You knew the job was dangerous when you took it, Fred.
