1. "Time Goes By" - [sweet.tx.tea]
Date: May 7, 2009; Location: [sweet.tx.tea]'s room; Explaination:The skeleton key was a gift from my best friend's grandmother; it used to open her house in Russia. The pocket watch was my grandfather's in World War II. The thing in the background is a candle holder. It sat in my great grandmother's house before she moved over from Germany. A family member sent it to us about a year ago.

2. "the old factory" - [dawn bolly]
Date: june 24th, 2009; Location: in the attic of my house
Explanation: Its an old steam factory toy my dad used to play with as kid. My dad told me once that he got it from his grandpa. It was given to him because he always wanted to play with it when he was visiting his grandpa.
Sadly it doesn't work anymore after all these years.

Date: June 24th 2009. Location: my livingroom
Explanation: Keys: My Aunt gave me them in Scotland. They were from old doors and buildings that no longer existed.
My Grandfather's Wallet: Given to me when he died when I was still a baby.
My Oldest Teddy: My Koala Bear! Belonged to my Dad and he came from Australia!
A Toy Cannon: Another of my Dad's childhood toys, me and all my siblings played with this aswell.
Baby Jane: My Oldest Doll who only ever belonged to me.
Blue Sweater: My grandmother knit this for my Dad when he left to join the Air Force and WWII. Every member of my family has worn it.

4. "A Walk Down Memory Lane" - [Lord Josmar]
Explanation: Well the Sock Monkey is mine from when I was a child.
The picture is a "Shadow Portrait" where the person uses...well shadow to draw a siloute of your face onto black paper then cuts it out (its of me). The fan is a victorian style fan that belongs to my mother as well as the little dangling necklace that the monkey has on it.
The cobwebs on the monkey have no story though.

Location: Parentals Kitchen

5. "Technology from the Past" - [nehirwen]
Date: June 29th, 2009; Location: my living room.
Explanation: We bought this gramophone player from a friendly old widow who's husband was a known musician. She was never allowed to change the settings and even sold it with the last gramophone her husband listened to on it. This beautiful piece of technology with it's memories is now in our living room having a second life.

6. "Visitor from the Past - More tea Mrs. Pomeroy?" - [iippo]
Date: July 1st 2009; Location: My house, Coventry, England
Explanation: The time travelers dropped by today. They had traveled from the 1870s, and when I met them on this hot day, they looked positively exhausted, so I invited them to come by my house to get out from the sun, to have a drink and to rest for a minute. They were very nice company, and they weren't much phased by any of our modern inventions, even though we had something of an argument about Charles Dickens. They refused my request to go back with them, then we traded gifts, and I took this photo as a last memory of their brief, refreshing visit.

7. "Stained Pages" - [sweet.tx.tea]
TO COME! I do not have it at work...:/ Only select pictures on this computer.
Date: July 14, 2009; Location: [sweet.tx.tea]'s room; Explaination: I have a fascination with old books. This specific one traveled all the way from Germany with my great grandfather; it was the only book he had in English. The ink-quill pen was a gift from my mother, years ago when I was trying to figure the art of calligraphy. The more calligraphy looking pen was used by my grandmother when she was a child, as well as the ink. My grandmother is now 84. As for the glass next to it, that is a kerosene lamp. I am not certain as to its origin, but, it certainly seemed to fit.

8. "In Memoram" - [SilverFire]

Date: 24th July 2009, Location: One of the many local cemeteries. Explanation: As you are, so once were we. As we are, so you shall be.

9. "Got Milk?" - [Nioniel]

Date:August 28th, 2009, Location: The back steps to my house. Explanation: A collection of very old milk jars I found which were covered in dust and spiderwebs.

10. "From The Past" - [Kelaria]

Date: September 14th, 2009. Location: My bedroom.
Explanation: This stuffed bear and donkey both belonged to my mother when she was a baby! There is actually a photo that used to hang in my childhood bedroom that is of my mother holding this exact same bear when she was about 1-year-old! The bear and donkey are mine now and hold a lot of special meaning for me.

2009-10-12 [sweet.tx.tea]: Would you like me to post my second picture's proof or just take it out of the contest?

2009-10-12 [Alexi Ice]: Don't worry, Sheep. The poll has not been submitted yet, so adding a proof photo now would be just fine.

2009-10-12 [sweet.tx.tea]: :] Thanksies, dear. I will add it as soon as I get home. My Wifi at school sucks.

2009-10-12 [Alexi Ice]: Alright, no problem. The poll won't be up until the mage photo one is taken down.

2009-10-12 [sweet.tx.tea]: Aye! :]

2009-11-02 [Teufelsweib]: normally the usernames of the participants aren't showed on purpose to make sure no one votes for friends and such. isn't it a bit weird to put the poll on the same page as the entries, then? :S

2009-11-02 [moira hawthorne]: originally this was how it was always done... makes it easier to see the entries...

and really the ones who vote for their friends are still gonna vote for their friends no matter

ET is no different than an everlastin highschool

2009-11-02 [sweet.tx.tea]: Not necessarily. Sometimes, people do vote for which one they think is best. I suppose what could be done is a separate page made with the explanations of the photos with the images and a poll on that page. Should we do that or leave it alone? 

2009-11-02 [Teufelsweib]: I don't know whether people still vote for their friends or not, and I don't really care either. it's just that it was a fuss before so they changed it that they don't put the names up anymore along with the entry in the poll, but they either decided not to do it anymore or forgot about it on this page.

2009-11-02 [Alexi Ice]: The problem is that our main street poll page is backed up. So this and the Griffan poll are being featured on their pages. ^^ No means to offend or anything. 

2009-11-02 [sweet.tx.tea]: Ahhhhhhhhhhh! >.< Back up's a pain.

2009-11-02 [Alexi Ice]: I know. Ugh.

2009-11-04 [Teufelsweib]: I know it's backed up, more that I would have put the poll on a different page, that's all :P but nevermind that :3

2009-11-04 [Alexi Ice]: No, no, it's a good idea. Lol. And definatly something to think about. Right now though we can only hope that people are being fair with their votes.

2009-11-04 [nehirwen]: I originally put it on a different wiki, but [Hedda] thought it was better to put it here..

2009-11-04 [Alexi Ice]: ...>> Hehehe. Oh well. It isn't a huge deal I hope.

2009-11-08 [kamisch]: Argh! Silly [sweet.tx.tea]...I would've voted for yours! I really liked it.

2009-11-08 [sweet.tx.tea]: I am flattered. <3

2010-01-05 [brecht]: beautifull pictures there! I liked watching them, so if any of you photographers bothered to come back to the crimescene, (I mean this page..) thanks for uploading these I enjoyed it ^_~

2010-02-25 [Akayume]: I'm excited for a new contest to start. (:

2010-02-26 [Alexi Ice]: Sorry it took me so long to put the winners up ... >.< *Fail.*
