Garbage Man Collects Thousands of Pictures From WWI Over the Years


Bob Smethurst has seen a lot of crazy items in his time as a garbage man. He felt some of those items were worth saving.

Throughout the 70's and 80's he has collected and saved over 5,000 images, letters, and pieces of history memorabilia from WWI. All of these were found in landfills. For his efforts he now owns the largest collection of images from the war. He plans on leaving the collection to family and friends. He feels if they were donated to a museum they might be put in storage somewhere and no one would be able to enjoy them. He has very little interest in making any money from them.
