The theme for this week's Sepia Saturday is based on a photograph of a boy holding two birds/ducks/geese, not sure what they are, but a quite odd photograph it is. I have a couple of photos in my collection I have been holding on to that I thought would fit this theme perfectly. Therefore I humbly submit to you my odd animal photos.
The first photograph is a small snapshot taken of a portly man holding a rather large fish. On the back he is identified as "Uncle Bert", 37 (1937) Ft Drum, at Corpus Christi.
This next photo is actually a real photo postcard and I have to be honest with you about this one. I bought this in an antique store and why I did, I do not know because I have a terrible phobia about snakes; I cannot look at them, cannot even bear to think about them, I will probably have a nightmare tonight from just posting this photo, but it is too perfect for this theme not to post. The man is identified on the back as D. J. Winters, but I have not been able to find out any information about a snake wranger with this name. I believe this was a rattle snake but, since I have no knowledge of snakes and want none, I am not sure. According to the AZO mark on the back it was produced between 1904 and 1918.
