That's so cute!
And kudos for posting a pic taken during this century.
Laura those are really great photos. I love your Grandpa Chester on the bike! The dead baby one is so weird. I know (and you probably do too) it used to be common to take death photos, especially in Victorian times... they had a special name for it that escapes me now. And even now lots of people take photos of stillborn babies.
I think it's so sad that nobody knows who that baby is anymore.
One time I was looking for images on the internet and I came across this website that was entirely dedicated to death photos. It was one of the creepiest and most disturbing sites I've ever been to. Photos of dead people freak me out. It's so weird to me that even in the static image of a photo you can still tell who is dead and who is alive.
Anyway! On a much lighter note, it occured to me that I might actually have the cameras those pics of my relatives were taken with, lol. I should have taken much more artistic shots of them because they are interesting objects but, I didn't.
I love old stuff.
This might be the camera that pic of my grandmother and her grandmother was taken with. It's the oldest of the bunch. It's basically a glorified shoebox with a hole in the front, lol.
The inside. I love how there's nothing in there.
The front, the side, and the back. That tiny silver lever on the side under that window is the shutter release.
This is stamped on the inside.
