VINTAGE – HUGH’S WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – WEEK 27 untitled

For this week’s photo prompt, we have to find photos of something that is vintage.

I’m a bit confused as to what vintage actually means. Looking up the word, it mostly applies to the year wine was made. Of course, other items now are called vintage, if they have been around for a long time. Then there are the other terms for something that is old, such as antique, collectible, and retro. It seems there is disagreement on how old something has to be to call it one or the other.

So…here’s my photos…they are of old things. Call them what you will. 🙂

  1. You have chosen an interesting of vintage objects. Enjoyed the visit back in time. I learned to type on a typewriter much like that. It was a real challenge to lighten my touch so that I could use an electric typewriter!

    • Thanks, Oneta! Yes it brings back memories of learning to type. Mine was a big old Underwood typewriter. It did take some getting used to when using an electric, but now it’s so much easier on a keyboard! 🙂

  2. I would class all these items as vintage. The typewriter is a classic example, especially if it is in very good condition and/or was made by a company that was considered to be one of the best.
    Thanks for participating.
