Stranger's Photo

We found this photo in an antique shop in Portsmouth when we visited in December.

I love collecting the photos of strangers who have long since passed.

In this one, the boy is holding a toy gun and wearing what appears to be some sort of jester outfit with a fez.

I love trying to decipher what purpose such props had. Often I find symbols that have long since lost their meaning in our society.
