  Not a single smile. Looks like it was a fun party...

  Yeah... I wonder who was disturbed more deeply ? Patients or staff ?

  If you'll notice, in many older photos people very rarely smiled. I think it was improper or disrespectful or something

  Whitby Psych was built in 1919, so technically they're Edwardians, not Victorians

  Oh... Then... Stupid Edwardians!! The idea of not smiling in photos was I think instilled by the victorians.. At least, they didn't smile either !! ahhaha!!

  They didn;t smile cuz the camera took so long to take the pic. no use holding a pose for 3 minutes

  That's a lousy excuse... I enjoy holding a smile for hours on end... don't knock it till you've tried it!

  The creepist part of this photo is how "surprised" some of the patients look.

  how can you tell the patients from the staff they all look the same :)

  Where did you get this picture? If you can't tell me, then that is okay but I don't understand why not. I would love to see them to make sure this was actually taken at teh WPH and not some other place.

  Wasn't the Psych build in 1916.. It says that on building 19 and 20. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Posted by manitou 4/11/2004 7:42 AM | remove
  Yeah, it was 1916, my mistake.
Posted by nellie27 4/11/2004 5:01 PM | remove
  Actuallyk, it started being built in 1913 by prisoners from a guelph prison.

  This must have been a pretty creepy christmas party... Thats when they bust out the EST machine to entertain guests...

  Generally alot of the time, people did not smile because they are hiding bad teeth.

this was fairly common way back when...
