Oh hey, look, old school horsemaning.
Anton Rodde, a Chicago resident, shot this photo during the 1930s. He was a lithographer by profession, but enjoyed amateur photography. This particular collection contains loose photographs and snapshots, which include images of Chicago scenery, and features Rodde’s own home and family portraits. In particular, his “trick” photography depicting illusions such as severed heads and objects of disproportionate sizes in a single image stands out.
