Happy Valentines Day, everyone!
Today I will be doing a triple feature of three categories of old photos of male pairs. The first group is from the collection of two Dallas men whose pictures were evaluated by experts at the Smithsonian and strongly felt to be gay couples. A number of criteria were used, including inscriptions/notes, period symbolism, hand positions, body language, and expressions. The first image is a couple of farmers who were photographed together over a number of years. Their relationship is more evident in the later photos, but this is my favorite. They are simply beautiful.
