The man could give even Freddy Kruger nightmares! Inhuman! Like an elderly Frankenstein Monster with an angry grimace and glaring eyes that may not be real. IT'S A BUG HUNT! A BUG HUNT! GAME OVER, MAN! GAME OVER! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!!!.....
One weird thing that comes to mind is that the old couple might not have really been old. Times were different back then and people often had poor nutrition and aged fast. Women tended to go tooth early. Either a small child's been adopted by his/her grandparents or the two geezerly adults are the child's own Mom and Dad! Maybe they really are old and Mom had the kid just before menopause. Who knows?
What gets me is that this photo was meant to be a nice family photo to put in an album or hang on the wall and gaze upon and have warm, fuzzy memories. People back then must have had a huge tolerance for unintended scariness. Same for the photo posted above.....
19TH CENTURY PERSON: "Oh, look at this sweet photo of Mable, Billy and Li'l Jo-Jo! This is so sweet! And there's Grandpa Hubert in the back! Hi, Gramps! Can't wait to see you all next Christmas!"
21ST CENTURY US ON THIS FORUM: "OH GAWD! KILL IT WITH FIRE! AGH! FREDDY KRUGER!"
Heck, even stuff in the early-mid 20th Century: Freaky Halloween costume designs, toy designs, Santas and Easter Bunnies, Mickey Mouses that are Freaky Mouses! WHAT WAS WITH PEOPLE, BACK THEN?! Every thing, even "cute" and "kid friendly" stuff just looked wrong!
