We're used to seeing people in old photos looking very stern. Here are some pics from the late 1800s and early 1900s that don't exactly fit that stereotype...

WOW, that is really something! Especially that last one---I just love that. You can tell he tickled her under her arm! How cute is that?! Love

And kinda freaky, the girl with the mona Lisa smile reminds me a lot of Ruth! Don't you think?? OhMy


Thanks for sharing these, Rob! Applause

Wow! Usually looking at some old time pictures people look kind of scary. This time they are full of life Smile

I'm sure it was the moonshine. lol


My Grandmother always said she was embarrassed to smile because she had dimples, and EVERYONE commented on them. She later decided they were okay to have.
She gave them to me so guess I am okay with them too.

True! Pictures from that era are usually very creepy.

I love that picture. She does look like Ruth. It would be interesting to know who she was and what happened to her in her lifetime.
