Readers rightly speculate about the meaning behind some of the photos I run. It's hard to know, for example, whether images of men hugging or dancing means there was some romance involved or whether it was just the custom back then for men to be openly demonstrative with male friends and relatives.
In the spirit of "I don't know but I have my suspicions," here are two sweetly tender antique photos ca. 1905-1915 which left me guessing. What do you think? They're after the jump.
