Snapshots Of The Century
With your help, we'd like to review the 20th century in photos - YOUR photos. We're looking for amateur pictures that show how people lived, shopped, ate, dressed, traveled, worked, and played. They might freeze a moment, tell a story - or have a compelling story behind them. Pictures that evoke the age in which they were taken; pictures with a wide appeal.
Do you have some that qualify? Could we take a look?
DO NOT send irreplaceable pictures. If you have a precious photo you'd like us to see, send a good-quality photocopy. If we like it, we will contact you about having a duplicate photo made.
If you DO send original photos, include a self- addressed envelope with proper postage so we can return them to you. (You may also e-mail images to us. The parameters are listed on the coupon below.)
You may send as many as FIVE images per submission. The photos must have been taken between 1900 and 1975. (It's not history unless it's 25 years old.)
DEADLINE: To be considered for our first installment, photos must reach us by APRIL 30.
We will publish a selection of photos in the Monitor and on our Web site (csmonitor.com). Your reward for our choosing your image will be seeing it in the paper. (We'll send you extra copies!)
