Souvenir Photo Postcards Taken In A Seaside Bowery Photo Studio-1910
From The Rockaway Museum

This handsome couple doesn't look very happy with each other while they are posing for a souvenir photo- to make peace after an argument maybe? The look in her eyes and the set of her chin and that cold stare says something! Also, the way she is holding her arm down (maybe to hide a clenched fist) could possibly reveal a volcano about to explode!
The look on the guy's face tells me that he is muttering to the cameraman to hurry, as he had to take his eyes off her. He is, if you have not noticed already, holding an oar in his right hand to protect himself if!!! I wonder what happened after they left the studio?
