I have been fascinated with the past all my life. Although time travel is not possible (at least, as far as I know), we can still experience it through what I call "relics of the fourth dimension." Namely, as the old saying goes, "time marches on." We can't travel in the fourth dimension, except going forward in the present, but we can follow the trail of the fourth dimension. Along the way, people lose or discard items from their being. These relics are unintentional time capsules that give us as glimpse into their lives. Here on The Time Searchers blog, I will show some relics of the past that I have run across in our present. Sometimes when I am out on a relic hunt with the Colonial Relic Hunter, we know that we are not alone. There is more than just relics at these historical sites. Indeed, it could be said that there is a portal to the past, perhaps to another dimension, where that which once was, still is. A place where the real consorts with the shadows; the present fuses with the past, on Time Searchers: Ghost Relics.

EARLY MOTORING-OHIO, 1913 PEOPLE IN AN OVERLAND TOURING CAR


I LOVE THESE EARLY AUTO PHOTOS.  HERE'S ONE OF AN ELDERLY GENTLEMAN AT THE WHEEL OF WHAT LOOKS LIKE A OVERLAND TOURING CAR.  WHAT'S GREAT ABOUT THIS PHOTO IS THE 1913 OHIO LICENSE PLATE ON THE FRONT OF THE CAR.  IT IS AMAZING TO THINK THAT THIS GENTLEMAN WAS BORN AND GREW UP IN THE HORSE AND BUGGY ERA AND HE LIVE INTO THE AUTOMOBILE ERA WHERE HE IS DRIVING A BIG OVERLAND TOURING CAR IN THE COMPANY OF THREE LADIES.  NOTE THE RIGHT HAND DRIVE ON THE CAR.  A GREAT LOOK BACK TO THE EARLY AUTO ERA.-THE TIME SEARCHER
