Day #25 – Throwback Thursday, a little different
This is the prompt for day 25, 25-06-2020.
Time for day 25 of #TTC2020, the Tremento Tribe Challenge 2020.
Today's prompt for you is:
Throwback Thursday: show your guests what your place looked like in the past or before opening.
Let’s throw it back this Thursday!
What did your place – your restaurant, B&B, hotel, guest house, café, campsite – look like before you got started?
You can throw it back to just the day before you started – or aaaallll the way to the first picture you can even find! Diving into your local town’s or city’s archives can help.
I love diving back into archives like these. It’s how I discovered most of the old pictures for one of my previous clients. I also – while writing this prompt – went ahead to see if I could find old pictures of a specific street here in The Hague (where a restaurant of one my clients is located at).
Easy-peasy, because I found multiple pictures within just 1 search. Look at this one below, from roughly 1915. More than 100 years ago! Isn’t that awesome?
Okay, back to the prompt.
- Dive into your own or your local town’s/city’s archive (you can often do this online!)
- Find the picture you’d like to share and upload it to Instagram
- In the caption: tell us what you’re showing us
- and why you wanted to share this OR how you felt back then OR what your expectations were back then (if you are, for example, sharing photos of your opening)
Don’t forget to tag relevant other users (@username) and add local hashtags to drive up engagement. You can also tag users in the photo itself, if you don’t want them in the caption.
Really want to generate some extra exposure? Send it to people you think might enjoy the post!
Ouch, long one. Good luck everyone!
