  2. Love this photo, particularly the woman peeking around the hat … tea time! Wonder what colours they were wearing?

  4. Girl just gotta have fun …

  5. Photos back then were so often posed, but this one looks like it was taken in a moment when the two ladies in the middle weren’t expecting it. And look at those hats, and the cape on the woman at left. I have a friend who’s into period costume. She’ll love this one!

  6. Is it a family photo, Kristen? Taken when? Where?

    • It’s another from Jeff’s collection of old photos. We don’t know who the ladies are, but there is a photographer’s stamp that gives a Yonge Street Toronto address. Looks to be 1890s to me? Which is before his family arrived…

      • Every time I look at it I see something new. Like that awkwardly teeny tabletop. I didn’t know Jeff had a collection of old photos — I’m sure they’re all fascinating. I like poking around in antiques stores and looking at old photos of others, but I have never bought one. The closest I came was a couple of years ago when in a shop I noticed two old photos of a father and daughter, taken different years, and their names were even on one. I almost bought them and tried to track the family down — you know me and my Harriet the Spy tendencies. I sort of regret not doing that. 😦

    I think they were posing for quite a long time while the photographer got his equipment ready. Then got so tired of posing they took a break to unsmile their faces and then the camera clicked. Very funny photo!

    Is the woman pouring a servant?

  11. Good possibility! I hadn’t thought of that.

  12. So funny Allyson, er Harriet. Actually it could make fascinating documentary project!
