We’ll start our look through the last of Jack & Marge Day’s photos with an “action shot” of sorts.

This young family appears to be one of several groups leaving a race or a horse show or somesuch. They, and their off-side horse, are holding very still while the photographer works his time-consuming magic. The vehicle behind them and the horse to their left, however, are all moving so much they’ve become blurred … as has our little family’s near-side horse. He moved around so much, in fact, that his legs look fuzzy and someone has had to draw his ears in with a pen.

According to several notations on the back, this photo was taken in Manchester, New Hampshire, circa 1880.
