It always amazes me how small some of these old photos are. How did they see all the detail? This image has such an old-timey, rustic feel to it that I was worried it was a photo of reenactors, but I’ve decided to trust that we’re looking at the real deal. Is this their home? It looks like water has to be hand-pumped from the pump in the back ground, so maybe after doing two lines of laundry, they decided to toss in the dog, too. It’s not the prettiest photo, but I think it’s an interesting slice-of-life look at a different time. And, of course, the dog is cute.
