Hey, What Was THAT?

From the John Holly Williams Collection

Yet another fun family photograph with no names, no date, no location.  I simply love the looks on their faces.  It's almost as if a noise or an unexpected sight from behind the photographer grabbed their attention, and the photographer opened the shutter at just the right time.

Notice the youngest child's left foot is blurry, a good indication of slower emulsion films from back in the day.  The haircuts are also adorable and makes me believe this photo is from the 1920s, when "bobbing" hair was all the rage. 

Mr. Williams was often asked by customers to make copies of older photographs and this one is surely one of those.  

If anyone recognizes this family, please leave a comment here or on my Facebook page.
