Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

Its probably not safe to assume this is a girl, am sure they used to dress boys the same.

Album inscription “Harold & Esther” (left) & Esther as an older lady (right).



Unnamed Group

Three dapper chaps, one in WWI uniform.



Unnamed Portrait

Portrait cut from photo postcard, reverse suggests possibly French.



Unnamed Nurse

Unnamed nurse somewhere by the sea, this was with another photo which was printed in Scarborough so possible Yorkshire coast connection.



Military Group

Three military gents posing in front of truck, its first world war but dont know enough about military uniform to determin rank, the truck on the other hand…



Unnamed Portrait

Victorian Lady in hat, Cut from a photo postcard, the reverse shows it was processed by “Gale’s Studios” and boasts “Branches Everywhere” i am assuming that means everywhere within the british empire.
