I figured out why folks look so sullen on these old pictures: the wimmen don't have microwave ovens and the men don't have pneumatic tools. Thanks again Jay !!

If you had to use the Sears catalog as butt wipe you'd look sullen too!

That is quite an accomplishment for 1920. Life expectancy has improved since then.
They probably never had a car with a starter.

He has a car with a starter...It's standing right beside him!

Their wedding would have been May 2, 1870

If that couple were teenagers when married, they would be less than 70 years old.

Whistler's mother was only 67 years old in the famous 1871 painting:

In contrast, here is Sophia Loren one month shy of her 67th birthday in 2001. The company I worked for used to make this comparison when discussing longevity.

Why do they look so much alike? :-)

Maybe Whistler's mother would have looked younger if she'd had plastic surgery, Botox and better dental care ?
