This is one of the creepiest web sites I've ever seen.

I have seen a bunch of these. With the great flood in Johnstown there were a bunch of them taken afterwards. Creepy, but at the same time, like some of the captions said, it was the only time the whole family was together and probably the only time anyone ever thought of getting their picture taken. It wasn't cheap back then.
