  1. In 2142 (same time difference between us and this photo), people will gawk at some photo you had as a child and comment on it with some crazy, magic-like technology we cannot even imagine ourselves.

  2. I’m not used to 1800s pictures where people are actually smiling.

    After looking at a lot of pictures from that time-period, you can get the impression everyone from the 1800s were serious and stoic people

  3. Native Americans usually look so stoic in pictures. I’ve never seen one like this. It’s really humanizing rather than just looking at a picture from a time ago. Thank you so much for sharing. I hope she was able to live her life full of the joy and happiness exuded in this picture.

  4. Is this like the Tom Cruise thread, but instead of everyone replying “Tom Cruise”, it’s just an endless cycle of people stating that they’ve never seen an old portarait of people smiling and then others replying that that it was because they had to stay still for a long time because of the cameras that were used?

    I swear it’s like no one bothered to read each other’s comments before making a comment themselves…
