We’re not going to pretend to understand what people were thinking about way back in the day when they snapped these strange photographs. For some reason, people had an amazing fascination with skulls, masks and skeletons. And they took time out of their busy days to pose for the oddest photos.
We suppose that the people in these bizarre pics had reasons for taking them. On one, two guys are holding a pair of sticks up to a woman’s eyes. If there was a reason for this, we’d sure like to hear what it was.
We live in a day of selfies and funny pics. We don’t imagine 100 years from now that people will look at our present-day photos and think they are as strange as a century ago. But then again, that’s probably what those people said back then…
