There are some pretty glum looking folks there. Maybe they don't like having their pictures made?

No, he does not! He looks short and stocky, but apparently I am not a good judge of height!
This one is cute. I got this from Shorpy.
Circa 1894. "Fritz Reuter." The Washington, D.C., hotelier and his children Fritz and Gertrude. 5x7 glass negative by the C.M. Bell portrait studio.
On the Facebook post they posted "At least the dog seems enthusiastic" :lol: It's the photo called "We're Blase"

Now that's a unique one. I'd like to have heard what Louis had to say about that experience. :)

This was in a collection of assorted clutter I downloaded at some point in the past. I have no idea where it came from, but I like it. The caption is "Coffee Time". :)
