He Used to be Someone

Happened across this photo of American actor, Edwin Booth.  Can you believe it's 140 years old?


I wonder, while posing, if he ever thought people would be still looking at him so far into the future? (him posing, not me posing. I'm slouching)

It's things like this that start me thinking.  I mean, everyone alive in the world at the moment that photograph was taken is dead now.  Even the babies.  Makes me ask, 140 years from now, when everyone I know is long buried, will people be looking at images of me?

(btw, his brother's the man what shot Abraham Lincoln)
