AncientFaces Ever wonder what a slumber party looked like in the 1800s? Every child at Alta Dillion’s slumber party in 1898 Oregon wore nearly identical nightgowns and had their favorite doll.

Wonderful photo! Actually I recently read that in the 1800's people were considered to be insane or look insane if they smiled in photos. Hence serious photos. It also had to be the length of time to pose and it would be hard to smile that long.

Doesn't look fun because they weren't actually at a party. Look at the background - it's a painted set and not an actual home. This was set up at a photographer's studio - most likely to commemorate the event....
