Old Pictures

Love this thread! By the way, does anybody know why somebody all those years ago thought to take a picture of a little boy and a rooster XD ? I'd like to know the story behind it.

I don't know, but the guy was a genius Big Grin
Je ne suis ni dieu ni démon,
Et tu m'as nommé par mon nom
Quand tu m'as appelé ton frère ;
Où tu vas, j'y serai toujours,
Jusques au dernier de tes jours,
Où j'irai m'asseoir sur ta pierre.

Old pictures, books, news print (old stuff in general) always bring a particular kind of joy to me.

I have no idea, it is one that makes me wonder what the idea behind it was. If someone decides to put a cigarette in a little kids mouth and take a picture of him with a rooster then they are just attempting to be bizarre, but i get the impression that isn't the case here. That it actually is something in that their is something behind it.

There is a band on the roosters leg which i would guess means that it wasn't just pulled out of the barnyard.

@ Minus: Only thing I can think of is maybe the cockerell is actually giant and they wanted to show how big it was or something... I don't know, all I know is that Icertainly can't think if any other reason why I'd get a small child and a cockerell and take a photograph like that LOL.

I maybe wrong but I think the rooster is some kind of a lucky charm. Because my father also has a photo where he sat beside a rooster and he looks funny though. LOL

That could be.

"In many countries the rooster is a symbol of good luck, prosperity, strength and fertility. It is believed to chase bad spirits away, crowing when most people are still sleeping."

If that is it, the cigarette is still a curiosity. At least i don't think parents ever commonly gave their children cigarettes.

The kid seems too serious to represent a kid in that pic..
He represents a small adult maybe.

That is possible. It does look like a very large rooster. Still the cigarette in the kids mouth seems unusual. Maybe...
