A treasure trove of Trump memorabilia, including roughly 1,000 photographs of Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump, his family and friends found its way into a thrift shop and then a collector
The photos are even more remarkable for the humanizing and family man portrait it paints of Trump.
The material includes personal hand written notes and cards from the 1970s and 1990s.

The Daily Mail waited until it was obvious he had been elected to the presidency to release these pictures, not wanting to show anything favorable to the man the media loves to hate while he was still just a candidate.

Ivana Trump's junk was another woman's treasure. A trove of Trump memorabilia, including roughly 1,000 photographs of Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump, his family and friends, and apparently discarded by his first wife Ivana, was acquired by a South Florida collector about two years ago and laid fallow until being resurrected by DailyMail.com.
The material, stuffed into a suitcase, also includes personal hand written notes, Donald and Czech-born Ivana's Bacharach-photographed wedding album, eldest son Donald J. Trump, Jr.'s baby album dated Dec. 31, 1977 (his birthday) a card drawn by first daughter Ivanka to her parents, as well as Ivana's modeling cards, and much, much more. It is even more remarkable for the humanizing and family man portrait it paints of the often combative and caustic Oval Office contender.
And in yet another personal shot, Donald is even shown changing diapers!
There are photos of Donald like he's never, or at the very least rarely, ever been seen before. He's seen snuggling close with one of his young children in bed--all tasteful and innocent, unlike disgraced New York Congressman Anthony D. Weiner, who this past August was exposed after sexting an image of his bulging crotch as he lay next to his 4-year old son, Jordan.
The intimate family pictures mainly span the decades of the 1970s through the 1990s - before the Donald's second wife Marla Maples and third and current spouse Melania.

The pile features candid shots, polaroids and agency pictures from the likes of society shooter Mary Hilliard to Ron Galella, dubbed the 'Paparazzo Extraordinaire' and the bane of favorite subject Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' existence.

There is a 1977 Trump wedding album that shows a beautiful and radiant Ivana in her rather simple white gown and her dashing groom, including one at the altar of the Marble Collegiate Church in New York City, as they exchanged vows.
Dancing at the reception that followed are shots of the groom's folks Fred Sr., and Mary and the bride's parents, Milos Zeinicek and Marie Francova.
When the couple became parents of three, Donald, Jr., Ivanka and Eric, their birthday parties were snapped and notable in the fact that they did not seem like over the top affairs, but simply happy celebrations with no imported circuses or other extravagant entertainment.
