Pulling Her Weight


You know, I believe that one in the cart is actually sort of smiling. What do you suppose led to this picture being taken?

They were having fun?

I assume they were, but with the way people acted in old pictures, who can tell?

Liquor led to that picture being taken. I'm almost certain of it.

Hell, at that point I wouldn't discount opium syrup.

A bet.

Honestly though, I'm pretty sure people didn't really smile in photos back in the day because it took so damn long to actually take the photo. Cameras weren't advanced enough for high speed film to be worthwhile. You couldn't really capture a smile with the cameras people had.

Yeah, well, if you want to be realistic about it. It's just funny to see a photo that was obviously a gag and no one's smiling.
