Seems two men found 60,000 photos there dad had taken and meticulously organized of life in East Germany. Great article at Spiegel (http://www.spiegel.de/international/germany/0,1518,627720,00.html) and at the end of the article they have a link to 39 photos of his to see. Very cool stuff.

Quote: Manfred Beier had made a chronological list of every photo, complete with an archival numbering system. The notes detailed exactly how each picture came to be -- the day, hour, and minute it was taken; the camera, aperture, and shutter speed used to take it; and the exact location of its subject.
