I keep a collection of rare and unusual artifacts. Some from standing buildings, and others from buildings that have been demolished, sadly. As well as a variety of photos, that I personally find interesting, of buildings that are standing or not.
I have been collecting antiques since I was eight years old. I found this interest was found myself and not through any other influence. I restore antique lighting as my day job, and I have done happily so since 1984 (grade nine).
