Pictures From Nowhere

They Sailed Away

Unknown Couple Asleep On Boat (1930s) (AB Collection)

I can’t decide whether this couple posed for this photograph or whether they were actually asleep and a companion got his or her smartphone out and took a quick picture that would make a fine profile picture on Facetwit or the like. But this was the 1930s and it would take a year and a day to get your camera out, extend the bellows, measure the range for the focus and wind on the roll film. Perhaps they were sailing away for a year and a day to the land where the bong-tree grows.
