Photo Booth...

Looking through some scans of vintage family photos tonight, I came across this one of my Grandfather, Elisha Launius (right), taken in a photo booth in 1904, when he was 10 years old...(that's his younger brother Walt on the left) ~ I think it is SO cute...I wish it was larger (and clearer), but I'm glad we have it...the original was tiny! (At one time there were more images in this strip; at some point someone cut them apart.)

Though they are small, I really do like the "photo booth" format...usually more formal photos of that day and age were so solemn...I think these little strips of candid photos showed the sitter's true personality!
Now, here are some more "brothers"...
I couldn't resist.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
