    We may have done this before.... but what the heck. Picture can be of almost anything, of course, and you decide what is old - no rules. I'll start with my 1906 set of Century Dictionary/Cyclopedias:

    Lascaux Cave Art - 16,000 years old, more or less, and yet far less relic'd than some Strats I've seen. :facepalm

    Most likely the oldest thing any of us have ever photographed:

    Stumbled upon this old boat a couple of years ago.

    I just thought of another image I have in my Photobucket library of something that's pretty old (taken in the Los Angeles Natural History Museum):

    Cool boat. And for reasons I can't quite explain, I'm more interested in the trailer. Does it have a story? It's just a lot different looking than modern trailers. How is it supporting the boat?

    the boat just sits on it... its old school from the 50's.. I think we wrapped straps around the boat and literally pulled it about 5 miles to the marina each year at about 10 mph max.... it always made me nervous that we wouldn't make it... no lights no nuthin
