    It's interesting that it's so culturally odd today that nobody (besides the tank crew) is smiling. Photography had to develop to the point where a 'snapshot' could be taken, and the social norms of not smiling for photographs took some time to fade, if I understand correctly.

    They sure are. There's a lot of history in those faces. The carbon guy's still haunts me. The homesteader family photos are also quite poignant.
