Spotting old family furniture in other people’s photos

Since my family did not own a camera for many years, I have been forced to track down some of my memories through secondary sources. We had a sun porch in our home when I was little and in addition to some plants, a radio, and some books, it was filled with rattan furniture. It wasn’t the sturdiest stuff and eventually fell apart and was thrown away.

I never thought I would see any of them again until I was browsing an old magazine last night and spotted them in this photo. We only had one these chairs, but this is exactly what it looked like…

Have you ever spotted something from your childhood in someone else’s photo? Do you make a copy and save it?
