From the Barefoot Files...

This is a photo of my grandfather's brother and his wife.  Grover was born in 1887. There is no date on this photo.  In fact, the photo is a post card.  On the back it says "postcard"  It also says, " C. E. Kerfoot, 805 Pennsylvania Ave. NW Washington D.C."

Interesting clothing here -- love the bow tie.  Her white shoes with the dark dress are interesting.  Or are they really white?  I notice the backdrop is faded -- but is it really?  Could the shoes and the backdrop be victims of the dark clothing?  There is such detail on the clothes -- the shot was metered to the dark -- metering to the dark could cause the lighter colors in the frame to be blown out and lost.

His haircut is something else too.
