All we need is love! Sept 30th is National Love People Day. Half of the people at a family reunion almost 100 yrs ago - imagine how many more people there are to love now.

And I've never seen such a tacky post , Saralyn! These
peoples families thought they were beautiful. What if someone said your kids or someone you loved were ugly?? People can change their looks. Stupid is forever.

Stand for an hour at the door of a Walmart and watch people going in and out. You'll see plenty of "ugly" people. People don't look any prettier or uglier than they ever did, but the hairstyles back then for the women were extremely unflattering. Few people smiled in photos back then, and there are just as many folks who were born with a "resting b**** face" now as there were then.

Perhaps you watch too much tv and think all nurses, teachers, cops, lawyers, etc. are supposed to be at least good-looking, if not gorgeous...especially all those "teens" in shows who are actually in the mid to late 20's, but have perfect hair and make-up and very fashionable clothes.

One thing that is interesting is how few of these people were obese. Maybe 5 adults and one chubby child out of the whole group.

Saralyn Bennett Brantley i tell my third graders that sometimes we think things but don’t have to “say” them. A good test is to ask oneself is the thought true, kind, necessary? If not at least two, don’t bother.

Saralyn Bennett Brantley with that many people in the family (pic only shows half that were at the reunion) you might actually be a distant relative of one or more of them. I thought people your age were taught if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all. You are probably also one of those people who would be the first to get their knickers in a twist if one of the younger generations said something rude. What a nasty, dried up bitter old hag you grew up to be, you’re as pleasant as you are pretty.....

Very early technology made it harder to capture smiles

One common explanation for the lack of smiles in old photos is that long exposure times — the time a camera needs to take a picture — made it important for the subject of a picture to stay as still as possible. That way, the picture wouldn't look blurry. It had nothing to do with how they felt. Of course, if people did their research like I did, they would know this.

My grandparents said family reunions used to be a week-long event. People would bring their campers, park for the week and just visit with family, the kids play together. Then it became just a weekend event. Now you're lucky to get anyone there for an afternoon. We've really lost sight of what's important. People now have difficulty just holding conversations, "visiting" like the old folks do. It's just sad.

It wasn't a common practice to smile in photos til the 1930s and '40s. I'm impressed they could gather together the whole family like this!

I love this photo smiles or not! Can't imagine getting this many of my family in one place these days. Everyone is always busy, or don't care, or is fighting with half the family! I would love to have a family reunion as big as this without all the technology and just sit, eat, drink, play games and just chat!

WONDERFUL picture, and how great to have that many family members at a reunion!!! Sad to think that even the small children in this photo are all in their graves by now. Many of those little boys probably fought in World War II, and the girls may have been "Rosie the Riveters" in war factories. Also very sad to know that they all had the Great Depression in their near future! How many survived it?
