    Ah, they really knew how to have fun back in the day!

  3. Anne says:

    Is that another person behind the bare tree trunk, wearing a plaid shirt and leaning on the dresser?

    I give the gals a two thumbs up for even managing that awkward pose in a corset

    This is one of those “vintage” portraits taken at a photo booth you see in a carnival or amusement park, where they dress you up in old-looking garb and take an “old-fashioned” photo. I admit, the head pile does make it unique!

    Most old photos have stiff non-smiling faces because it took so much longer for the ‘flash’ to work, sometimes hours. Hard to hold a smile for that length of time 🙂 But this looks great, might get my 7 kids to do a pic like this.

    I actually love this photo. It’s rare to see victorian women being silly. I love their beautiful smiles. This is something my girl friends and I would do. I guess young ladies haven’t changed that much:)

    Is that one of those white molded plant stands that they sell at Bed, Bath and Beyond?

    these women were clearly ‘a-head’ of their time… 🙂

    yes!! saw this on retronaut the other day and immediately thought, “AFP!” pioneers, indeed!

    Charmingly Eastern European. What could their story have been? Young Pioneers leaving for Palestine, perhaps? I retroactively wish them well.

    i’ve got a box full of old family photos- most very stiff in pose. nice to see people actually had a sense of humor back then…
