The Whoop La Girls Camp–Carleton Place Ontario 1890- members and guests

I sure as heck would love to know something about this place. Anyone? This is camping attire?

Apparently in the 1890’s people did NOT smile for the camera, ever. Though they are obviously posing and putting on a show for the picture, its disconcerting to modern eyes how wooden-faced they all are. However, they are usually stone-faced because they had to sit/stand very still for a long time in order to get a good photo- due to slower technology back then. The other thing was, it was probably hot weather and they are wearing lots of clothes. That would make me frown. BIG time!
