33. My great grandfather looks extremely serious in the few pics we have of him.

He died before I was born, so I never knew him, but my dad says he wasn't like that at all...he was witty and fun-loving. However, he felt that having a photograph made was a serious occasion, and apparently a lot of people shared his view in those days. After all, it wasn't a common thing to do. He was aware that people were starting to "say cheese," "smile for the camera," etc., but according to my dad, he thought that it was a passing fad and that those people would feel foolish someday when they looked at pictures of themselves grinning at nothing in particular.
