OP didn't say it was her family photo, just that she came across it whilst researching her family tree hmm
And those women in the photo were real women so they have (we presume) relatives somewhere. Why can't op be one of them confused

There's a famous photo from a particular small island. The man in the photo is my Step Fathers Grandad. Just because other people have seen the photo online, and possibly have a print of it as a souvenir, doesn't make it any less his relative!

This photo's been online for ages, don't know why you're pretending it's to do with your family tree hmm.

Exactly.

I have posted quite a few photos online over the years, from my own family's photo collection. I have photos going back to the 1800s. It's amazing how many times they have reappeared, posted by other people, who often proceed to argue with me as to where/who it is a photo of. I know where they are photos of because my relative took it and it's sitting in my house with the name and date on the back, hand written about a hundred years ago. grin

The woman on the extreme right, bottom row?

The lady on the second row down , second from left doesn't belong. She looks too modern.

keeprocking Mon 05-Oct-20 21:40:56

Isn't there an extra arm on the top row? It looks like there should be another woman in the gap

Can't see for looking. Feel like Rachel Green looking at her baby scan.

@caughtalightsneeze some people really will argue that black is white! An old school friend of mine was adamant a few years ago that the place I worked in wasn't a MH hospital, and she would know as she lived opposite. The fact I had worked there for 3 years at that point was apparently irrelevant. (A quick Google would confirm I was correct!)

"i came across it while doing my family tree and it was a wtf moment when i realised."

Bollocks. I've seen it online before.

of course, i never said it was to do with my tree, as i explained to someone else.
why are you so aggressive ?

They've all got the same nose!

coldgraybrix Mon 05-Oct-20 21:50:58

Never mind the stray hand - why is the girl in the middle wearing a t-shirt?

SentientAndCognisant Mon 05-Oct-20 21:55:44

Well you’re being licentious with facts,suggesting it’s significant to you.Found it whilst searching family tree, inference being it’s linked to your family tree

romeolovedjulliet Mon 05-Oct-20 22:00:10

that's because i do very in depth research and explore all aspects for photos and in depth details on hundreds of websites , as i actually do this as a professional researcher so read it as you will, pile on if you want it's only to be expect that at least a couple of posters will on aibu. the photo was for fun and nothing more.

I see what it is but I don’t want to spoil it. Look closely...

Clearthinking Mon 05-Oct-20 22:02:37

No social distancing 🤣

SentientAndCognisant Mon 05-Oct-20 22:03:08

I don’t think you’ve got a pile on. Moderate objection x 2 posters
That’s not a car crash
I saw this photo previously on an old Ireland site

Oooh I love a creepy vintage picture 👻

RubyFlint Mon 05-Oct-20 22:10:43

Woman on the top right has a woodpecker on the side of her head. grin

Tell us!!!

FortunesFave Mon 05-Oct-20 22:19:14

It's either photoshopped or it's not a hand. It's fabric or something else.

Lipz Mon 05-Oct-20 22:19:42

Ah I see it, it's a naked man behind the 3rd woman on the back row, you really have to zoom in to see it
