What a marvelous glimpse into the past. It is especially touching to me to see these wonderful faces so naturally presented and not the stiff, formal, self-aware portraits that one usually sees from that era. Thank you for these; they are truly special. Reply Edan February 8, 2012 These are absolutely stunning. Reply Amelia July 13, 2012 I agree with barbara..Although these people lived over a 100 years ago, they seem soooo real,so accessible!
