I'm sure there's an interesting story behind this...

1. Ok, so what was the joke?

Jas. A. Reed  (LOC) The description from LOC: Photo shows Atlee Pomerene (1863-1937), Senator from Ohio and James Alexander Reed (1861-1944), Senator from Missouri.

2. Just having a good time on the street in the name of voting?

Rose Sanderson [i.e., Sanderman]  (LOC) The description from LOC: Photograph shows suffragists Rose Sanderman (holding horn) and Elizabeth Freeman (right).

3. What's with the baboon?

Coney Island, the Whole Drand Family  (LOC) The description from LOC: Title from unverified data provided by the Bain News Service on the negatives or caption cards. (not too helpful.)

4. I swear, that monkey (Rastus) has a cigarette in its mouth...

Mrs. Vernon Castle  (LOC) The description from LOC: Photograph shows ballroom dancer Irene (Foote) Castle (1893-1969) who taught and danced with her husband, Vernon Castle (1887-1918). Mrs. Castle is holding her French Guinea monkey, Rastus.

5. This woman... is... amazing.

Mrs. Herschel Parker  (LOC) The description from LOC: Title from unverified data provided by the Bain News Service on the negatives or caption cards. (which means, basically, "we know nothing of this person")

6. I find this photo hauntingly beautiful.

Deaf school children - dancing  (LOC) The description from LOC: Title from unverified data provided by the Bain News Service on the negatives or caption cards. (again, this means they have no idea...)
