People knew how to pose back in those days, don't you think? Or perhaps it was the photographers who had the knack for making the shots fun and interesting--like the tap line-up. Don't they teach that in photog school nowadays?

John F. Ptak

Thanks Terry--the tap line-up was pretty inspired, I've gotta say. And certainly posing was different--people still appreciated the special nature of having one's photo made, even if the camera was much more prevalent than ever before. The occasion was "special", and people reacted that way.
