Remember the one with the family where one or more just MIGHT have been a corpse (because this was posted on a board dedicated to Memento Mori photos)? It was a frumpy old crone, a toddler and a seated old man with the scariest grimacing face ever! The old woman was standing besides the seated man with her arm casually resting on the old man's chair. His eyes appeared to be panted on or something and the poor child who was standing/leaning on the old guys legs was positioned so that it looked like his head was detached and just sitting on his shoulders. The child itself had a rather spooked expression.

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!!!..... :confused0068:

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!

Frankly, they all look dead! I saw that one too. Freaky! What is even freakier is the picture is fairly clear for the time and still looks creepy.

God Bless

The guy probably opened and closed his eyes during a long exposure, and the kid moved his hand. Perhaps they look so grim because they are holding their mouth shut to avoid showing bad teeth. It was a common practice when people had little to no dental work available, and even among the wealthy. I mean look at most old pictures and see if anyone is showing teeth!

God Bless
