Today’s Top 5

Beserk bounce

The court looks like mostly dirt, and has many pebbles that would make it very difficult to predict where the ball would bounce. And those poor women, playing in those dresses!

No Sweat

Heavy, probably wool, pants and dresses, and hard shoes. These people would be drenched in sweat in seconds. All their hair is light and fluffy.

Did they do marketing/promo shots in 1905?
