Why people never smiled in old photos
Early portraits looked pretty grim.A lot of old photos from the 19th and early 20th century are fraught with doom and gloom—and on the occasion the literal dead face.

Exposure times were long and the thinking was it's easier to hold a serious expression over a long period.
