Yeah .. O.K. ... I cleaned up the man's face .. the fellow with his eyes closed ...
There was a large debris field (on our right) on the man's face ... see how
tightly his left fist is clenched -- white knuckles-- but his right hand seems
very relaxed ... his upper legs and his knees seem awkward ... his knees
aren't between anything ... but they seem to be in a position where they
could be placed between the tires, if need be. The tires do appear to be
resting firmly against his knees, legs and ankles.

Seeing the joyful expressions on the faces of his budz ... Well .. am not
so sure this is not Post-Mortem photography.

If it is it's a triple whammy, 3 for the price of one. Tintype, post mortem, and 4 bikes from around 1900

And the direction of the 3 chaps behind gazing one direction while the gentleman in the middle is facing the opposite direction.

Seeing the direction of the the faces of his budz ... and
they appear to be looking in the vicinity of the camera ...
Who the hell is he looking at -- Annie Oakley ??


The young lad is also sporting a tie ... must have been a
waaay long tie, Ken ... it appears a good bit of it's length
has been wrapped around his upper neck ... maybe a
handle or a ''tie-down'' manipulated from behind.

That dapper dude may be wearing a scarf tied like a sailor or cowboy style. Pretty common back then. Since his compadres are wearing coats and high necked sweaters I'm guessing this was not a hot summer day in Niagara Falls.;) We should all look that sharp on our rides.

I thought you were just kidding at first but upon closer inspection something is not right with that guy. Its also just a waterfall backdrop so it could have been set up in the home.

I'm not a Gambling Man but I would wager that this is in fact a post-mortem photograph. And I would even go so far as to guess that he probably died riding in a flood as a result of the low elevation of his handlebars.

That could be the flood that drowned Dayton and destroyed all the Wright Brother bikes.
The town was never the same...

Gary ......... I hope that I am open minded enough (for my own
satisfaction) to find a way to somewhat agree with you - and I do.
Maybe the fellow is alive .. but somehow I don't think he gives a
shizz-bisskitt about one-day being on the cover of GQ.

I do have to rule-in or rule-out a time-variable, tho' ...........

Am posing a question for any camera-buffs ... Which takes place
quicker --- a man momentarily-closing his eyes -- OR -- exposing
the negative by activating the shutter mechanism in a period camera ?


Some of those cameras had a shutter-shield ... that was left off the
lens for several seconds.

Were his eyes capable of engaging in a single, momentary blink .. and
then recovery ... as the negative was exposed during the lifespan of a
shutter-activation in a period camera ?
