One Big Happy Family
I don't know about other collectors of old photos, but I always have doubts about what I'm told by the people who sell them. When I get a lot like this, I ask if all the photos are from the same source. The dealers, of course, can intuit that I'm interested in buying images from the same family, so they tell me that, of course, all the same big family. I know that sometimes they're telling me the truth. I also know that sometimes they're just telling me what they know I want to hear. I think I see a family resemblance, and at least one man who's in two photos, but that could be wishful thinking.
