Photo Friday: Sitting Pretty

Until today Friday photos have been along the lines of,
"What was that tree owner thinking?"
Today's post is more of an envy inducing,
"Why can't I find family photos like this one?"
Some lucky Ancestry.com member will come along tomorrow,
or next year or in 10 years,
and find this amazing photo of their ancestor.
All because someone shared it on their public tree.

Mary Ahlert Taylor (B: 1843 in Germany) & William Breiner (B: 1839 in New Jersey)

Thanks to Janet for the link to this photo ;-)
If you have a photo to suggest please send a link to buwtree(at)gmail(dot)com.


  1. I think the photo contains an optical illusion and that Mary isn't actually sitting on the (stuffed) ostrich. But it's still really neat for the couple to have chosen to use this set for their portrait. Could the photo have been taken at an amusement park?

    1. At closer inspection it does look like there is a stool behind the bird. The plant is there to mask it. I hadn't noticed that before. My guess for a location would be a World's Fair. I wonder if anyone else has a photo on the same set?
