  1. This Photo was taken around 1903 in Pittsburgh PA. of my Grandparents wedding.If you think wedding clothing is formal now, this was a pretty poor Irish family, and yet they look pretty dressed up.Quality is of a contact printed 8X10

  2. always have wondered if life was miserable for our ancestors??
    There are usually no smiles in these antique photos
     
  3. I think the exposure time in available light studio shots in 1900 would have been a few seconds so it was easier not to smile.
