It’s quite possible that many, or even most, of the good people who read this blog are familiar with Vintage Belleville, Trenton & Quinte Region on Facebook. I personally am next to useless when it comes to Facebook, and only recently discovered this site (or page, or whatever it is one calls things on Facebook), but I am delighted with it and thought I should share.
Basically it’s a feed of vintage photos of Hastings County and the Bay of Quinte region, and these photos are charming, nostalgic and lovely. If you like (that is, tell Facebook that you like) Vintage Belleville, Trenton & Quinte Region, these photos show up in your news feed – and speaking strictly for me, it tends to make my day when they do. Mostly, of course, they’re about the populated and pretty southern part of the county – Belleville, Trenton and environs; but fairly often there are also photos from the region’s more northerly parts: Madoc, Tweed, and even Queensborough.
Followers (is that what you call people on Facebook? Can you tell I’m way more comfortable with Twitter? I am @ksedgwick there, by the way) are invited to post their own vintage photos, which means there’s great potential for tons of new old stuff to show up and surprise us all.
I may not be Facebook’s biggest fan or best practitioner, but I love those vintage Quinte photos!
