I like that some of the same trees are there, 100 years later. I thought of you today, I went to a big ole swap meet nearby. It is an adventure and like a mini vacation to Central America. Much like some do with ebay, people buy up storage lockers and just sprawl everything out on tables and blankets. It's what ebay would look like without the pretty pictures, templates and organization, in non-virtual world.

One table was simply full of old black and white photos, from old cameras, kind of curling around the edges some of them. I didn't have the patience to look at more than a few, but I think you would have enjoyed them. I'm sure they were very inexpensive for the whole lot.
