Pottery Barn sells systems you can use for this - they used to be called Wire Wall Display, but that was 5 or 6 years ago. I did just see another iteration of the product in either PB Kids or West Elm as well.

I love photos of that era. I have quite a few of my family that look similar too. So great.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

I absolutely love the way this clothesline presentation makes it possible to display tons of photos all at once. The consistency of the black and white keeps it from looking messy, and the overall effect is cool and artsy.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Long, Cold Winter Days—Bring 'em On!
Now's a great time to learn a new skill or pick up a new hobby. Knitting, painting, crafting or photography will make those winter days fly by.
A clothesline for photos is inexpensive, versatile (you could do this kind of display in any size space) and made for an eclectic collection of images. I love this one for its simplicity. It would also be a great idea in a child's room, where you could let her hang up her newest artwork, party invitations, magazine cutouts or whatever she wants.
Display black and white photos at home for Hollywood style. Photos line the hotel's Thirties-style lobby phone booths and serve as a reminder of the hotel's legendary history.
Becky Harris added this to 20 Great Ways to Display Family Photos
A wire framework and simple clothespins are a great way to hang family photos with vintage modern style.
Using unexpected methods to present a collection makes the items a little more subtle and feel more like a natural part of the home.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to 8 Therapeutic Benefits of a Family Photo Gallery
Family photos remind you of a proud heritage. Displaying photos of your ancestors reminds you to celebrate your family's roots, which instills pride and builds your self esteem.
For more structure, use a wire structure and clothespins. This serves as an ever-evolving inspiration board. The continuity of the clips and the black-and-white photography make it all work together.
Natalie Myers added this to Create a Place for Inspiration to Flourish
How about wires and wood clothespins as another pin board alternative?
So maybe you don't have time to scrapbook or digitize all your photos. Just make sure they're seen, and not stuffed in a closet somewhere. This easy solution from Sweet as a Candy keeps them in view and in order.
Play around with the composition. Separate black and whites from color and film from digital, or group by theme (family, weddings, travel, nature).
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 10 Ways to Honor and Remember a Departed Loved One at Home
4. Display old photos of your loved one in a creative way. I think it's nice to display pictures versus keeping them tucked away in a photo album. Feel free to incorporate unique picture display ideas into your everyday spaces. Friends and family members can be hesitant to discuss the deceased loved one, but pictures and dialogue can be very comforting to those who are grieving.
Ms. Fix-It Home Solutions added this to What to Do With Old Family Photos
Finding homes for unwanted photographs. Many people feel strongly that no old photo should ever be tossed. However, if you have tons of photos but have no connection to them (or if they’re just not your thing), what can you do with them? One option is to donate them. Historical societies worldwide often accept photos, especially if you can provide information about how they came to you. It can be a point of pride for small towns across the U.S., Europe and elsewhere to see how far and wide their native sons and daughters have traveled over the course of generations.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Downsizing Help: How to Edit Your Belongings
I had enough family photo albums stuffed with precious pictures to circumnavigate the globe. I avoided taking action until our second downsizing, to a little 600-square-foot bungalow, where the stunning lack of storage space demanded I deal with the album issue.

STEP 1: Do an initial cull Whether you have hard copies or digital files, start by going through them and doing a first cull. We take so many photos we will never look at again and they only add clutter to our bookshelves, minds and hard drives. Throw out any blurry, torn or out-of-focus shots. If you can’t recognise anyone in a photo, or even when or where it was taken, that goes in the ‘throw’ pile.
