All this week: some lovely old portraits of ordinary people, with their horses, mules, dogs, bicycles, even a goat.

Here we have a pair of big mules and a little girl, posing for their photo in front of what appears to be a new barn. The photo isn’t dated, but judging by the girl’s outfit, I’m going to guess this was taken in the very early 1900s.
