    Whenever I see old photos like this I am bothered by the thought that the subjects are all dead.

    1899...not a soul alive in the pic. Everyone there has probably been dead for over 40 or so years.

    It's just that there they are, living, breathing, and smiling, just like we do. Reminds me of the fact that we face the same fate. Now that is fucking morbid. :down:

    Look at their arms. And they probably got like that from a youth filled with farming, chopping wood and just being men from a very young age.
