The Postmodern Photo Family

I think that idea is to take photos that could have been taken at almost anytime since the 50s.

I've made a set on Flickr. I'll mix up real old family snapshots with current ones taken on old cameras, (mostly medium format).

For some reason, it's this photo that inspired it. Something about the poor light and off composition, with Grandad there almost as a spectator. And the bare bulb mortifies my mother when she sees this. "People will think we didn't have lampshades!" I'd love to know who took this and the camera/film they used.
