    I found a 36 star United States flag in a house in Bedford, VA. I would love to show it to everyone, but I can not figure out how to insert my pictures. Can you add pictures from an IPhone? The flag measures 7' x 3'.

    flag1.jpg Sorry for the posting twice everyone! I am a bottle collector amongst other things and I am a member of several different forums. Each one has different icons for posting photo's. I am trying to learn! I am not the best with computers.

    Last one, this flag does have some staining but it really shows it has some age to it. I am curious to hear some thoughts on it. I really enjoy hunting for old items and learning about Americana. Mostly I collect Early American bottles from all over the country. I was finding some really great advertising paper items in this house! The owner had passed away and he was a WWII veteran. flag5.jpg Any help would be appreciate! I hope this piece is interesting enough to post here and thanks!

    I have been reading some material online, and if I am reading it correct the canton should be in the upper left hand corner when hanging vertical? Sorry if my etiquette is poor, I am certainly learning on the fly. Does anyone feel this is not a period flag? That is the major question I would like to know.
