Odd poses? Let’s see what I can dig up with that.

Billy Sunday. Library of Congress, 1917

It looks like Billy Sunday, the professional baseball player turned preacher, is doing yoga in a suit in his home.

Ruth St. Denis, NY Public Library, 1923

Of course, a dancer like Ruth St. Denis would strike some dramatic poses like this one for her Burmese dance.

Police dog, State Library of NSW, n.d.

I wonder whom he’s calling? Did they just have phones on poles like this scattered across the region?

State Library of Queensland, circa 1905

My query for “pose” yielded this. Everyone’s so cooperative looking straight into the camera. I’m struck by the kids’ shoes. No velcro there. Also, the boy’s outfit sure shows the era.
