"We would be ever so much more pleasant if we were to motor in the Bentley with Dawson at the wheel, but Papa insists the thrice a month he must carry us about in the cook's Ford to show the locals that we are just like them. Oh, and he forces us to wear these, these, Costumes! Horrors!"

It must be a woman thing! All the woman and girls have the same look as the wife when I say we are taking the T.

In the olden days pictures were time exposures. The shutter was open longer than on modern cameras. It is easier to keep a straight face than it is to hold a smile, so that is the way pictures were taken. You will notice most pictures are that way, not just pictures with a car.

The women and girls are probably wondering who will sit on who's lap because they won't all fit on the seats, or possibly, who will ride the running boards.

By the time that T was built, roll film for amateur cameras was fast enough to take pictures at snapshot shutter speeds, like 1/25 or even 1/50 of a second.

My guess is photographers hadn't thought of saying "SAY CHEESE" before clicking off the photo back then :-)

Gil is right, the Brownie box-camera that everyone owned had a fixed-focus lens, and a fixed shutter speed at 1/50 sec. There was an aperture adjustment, a slide that offered a slightly larger opening for "cloudy".

Daddy looks like a stuffy, self-important jerk - that may account for the expressions his family is wearing.

Or else he's a tall man and the photog. has just said "Lean out so we can see you, Dad!"

BTDT!

Rich it's as plain as day- the kid on the running board has crapped himself, the mother forgot the diaper bag and the rest of the family is trying to recover from being in close confines with the little kid....Daddy is normally a barrel of laughs but while the picture is being taken he's thinking of dumping the kid and his bride who forgot the diaper bag. Simple.

Well at least the Glummer's all look alike!

I disagree. The Kid in the hat did the "naughty" and the old man is just trying to get a breath of fresh air. If Jr. hadn't gotten into the bag of prunes 5 miles back they'd have been to Aunt Sally's by now!

Jr. is not going to let go of the headlight, as he doesn't want to be left in the forrest!
