"The things Flo cherished as a showman were color, music, spectacle and fun. I am sure that his great talent was color"... Billie Burke about her husband Florence Ziegfeld.

"My grandparents kept a collection of old photographs in a shoebox. In my youth, I spent many happy hours looking through those treasures." Ian.
Shoebox Classics celebrates the best of bygone times in a modern way.

I've just bought the Jack Johnson album 'In Between Dreams' and was stunned to hear the following lyrics sum up the aim of Shoebox Classics so eloquently:-

"There's no combination of words I could put on the back of a postcard
And no song that I could sing but I can try for your heart
And our dreams and they are made out of real things
Like a shoebox of photographs with sepia-toned loving".
Jack Johnson - 'Better Together'


I hope you stay a while and enjoy.

If you can identify the models or wish to get in touch then please drop me a line.
