Smith auctioneer Craig Smith has auctioned over 3,000 vintage photos of her father’s funeral, including some he was wearing.
Smith says he was in charge of collecting the photos for his father, who passed away in 2013.
The auction has gone viral with Smith offering a whopping price of $1,000 for each photo.
Smith has also been selling vintage books from his father’s collection for the same price.
He has been selling some of the photos online since last year.
Smith is an expert at selling vintage photographs and he says he’s not only a collector, he also owns the original negatives.
“I think there’s a huge amount of interest in the photographs, and I think they’re really quite unique,” he said.
“There’s a lot of different ways of looking at them.”
Smith has already sold photos for $500 each.
But he has plans to do more.
He’s working with a private collection to digitize the photos, and he’s hoping to collect the negatives as well.
The collection also includes a few older photos of Smith’s father.
The photos show him at the funeral, in his uniform.
He wore a long, flowing shirt and white socks, and his shoes were black.
“He wore a white shirt, a black suit, and a white tie,” Smith said.
Smith plans to sell the photos to help support his father.
He said he hopes the auctions will help educate people about his father and about the history of funeral photography.
“The idea that these photos were taken in front of this big crowd of people, and then we have to come up with some sort of story or some sort.
That’s how much we want to know,” he told ABC News.
Smith said he has already received more than $1.2 million dollars in bids on his collection of photos.
“They’re all really great photographs, but they’re a bit out of reach for me,” he added.
“So the money will go towards the [collection’s] books, and hopefully I can have those books on eBay and put them on sale.”
