Actress Drew Barrymore took to Instagram recently to share some photos she found while cleaning out her storage locker. Given her storied movie career, including quite a turn in the very popular E.T., one might expect she would find some intriguing items in storage.
The little girl on the left is Rashida Jones, and the man above both of them is her father, Quincy Jones. Barrymore used the hashtag #oldstorageunitday for this particular image, which received 94,000 likes. She was just 7 years old when she appeared in E.T., one of the highest grossing films.
About the same time, she also acted in Firestarter and had her own chair while on set.
Personal photos like these can have great sentimental value, though if we don’t look at them often
we may forget where they are, or that we have them at all. It might be a good idea to periodically go through personal possessions to make sure they are in good condition and are safe.
Old film photographs are vulnerable to moisture, heat, and mold; they also tend to degrade over time. Having digital scans made is a good way to preserve them before they deteriorate.
