Life Through A Mailbox

What is this?

Because this site is meant as a scrapbook of my life, one of the absolutely-useless-to-anyone-else things that’s been on my to-do list for a long time is to have a place to upload pictures that are just random scans of documents that I’ve collected across the years. This page in particular focuses on ads, brochures, and other things from my mailbox, largely from my time at my Edmonton 205 house to start. Day to day scans of the junk mail and other rubbish that appears in my mailbox, before I (generally) throw them away. This place also will contain scans of notices that are pasted on or slipped under my front door, that sort of thing.

The documents here are very transitory, and I don’t own most of them anymore, most of them get scanned and then tossed right away. That being said, it is my hope that a document repository like this will act as a historical archive for one or two curious historians in the future, and a glimpse for present people at small snippets of life someplace else in the world, as well as being a book of memories for me to look back in in my future years. There is potential for overlap between this category and other categories, so as my definitions for what goes into which table shifts, some documents might get shuffled around between this list and other ones.

Single-page document scans in the table below will just have a direct link to the picture, whereas document scans involving two separate pictures or more will contain a link to a subpage with the scans posted there. As a note, while these documents will largely be .jpg or .png scans, if the name of a picture file ends in -scaled.jpg or -scaled.png, that’s WordPress doing its magic to generate a smaller version of the picture file, and if you want to see the actual full-sized picture for some reason, just open the same URL in a new browser tab/window without the -scaled part of the filename and it should generate the full version of the file. For example, filename-scaled.jpg > filename.jpg. None of these documents are OCR-scanned or anything. Maybe someday.

Scans of brochures, advertisements, leaflets, flyers, notices, etc that I have no reason to keep. Scan and toss!
