Upon first glance at these turn of the century photos one might first mistake them for the mock pictures that modern day people take depicting poses in old-school outfits with guns, hats and pitchforks without smiling (as they tended to do back then).

In reality, however, these photos actually are from the turn of the century. Back in the day photographers were definitely lacking in the creative and artistic department, which is great for us because it makes for awkward and laughable pictures of our ancestors.
