Pictures from Poppa

My grandfather, Sidney Kirschner, traded a pack of cigarettes for a camera on his way to Germany as a soldier in WWII.

He has been documenting his life in photographs ever since.


I just wanted to let everyone know that Sidney and I (OK, I) apologize for the lack of posts recently, but we’re back and have a whole new set of images scanned and ready to see the internet light of day.

Thank you, again, for your continued support of Pictures from Grandpa!

Caroline and Sidney

Poppa: I found you another box of pictures

Caroline: I don’t believe you.  I’ve been all over the house, I cleaned you out!

Poppa: It’s a big box!  Old ones, new ones, I started….

Bubbe (shouting in the background): I told him not to bother and just wait until you come.  He won’t know what to do with them anyway, he was just pushing around piles.  Leave them for Caroline, Sidney!

Poppa: She told me to wait.  I’ll bring them over the weekend and you’ll help me?

Caroline: Of course!

Poppa: I don’t know if any of them will be worth putting on the internet, but I thought you’d want to take a look!
