Photos from a Chicago area Antique (pre 1945) military Weapon/Gun Show–
People are the caretakers of military history. We hold the relics of war for a while and then pass them on to future generations. People get a lot of enjoyment out of looking at antique weapons and studying them. It’s fascinating to research the history of weapons. Looking at the name and serial number can provide the regiment that it served in. This information can lead to further research of Public Records and provide a wealth of information about the assigned owner/user of a gun. It’s like holding that persons history history in your hand.
