As the earliest cameras required a long exposure time, it was difficult to stand still and smile whilst the photo was being taken. Hence the lack of smiles.

Naomi MacLeod, I too have old family photos including one that was my late Dad's and full of photos of his friends. Unfortunately there is no-one alive to identify them and I have no-one to pass them down to.

Wonderful photos. I’m lucky to have quite a number of family photos from late19th and early 20th century. I think because the subjects needed to keep still in early pictures they appeared unhappy!!!
