Pulling faces for the camera isn't anything new if these fascinating photographs from over 100 years ago are anything to go by.
The newly unearthed pictures from the Northumberland Archives at Woodhorn Museum, in Ashington, show the ancestors were certainly up for a laugh.
And perhaps the most fascinating set of images are the series of Northumbrian natives making odd faces for the camera - although the date of these pictures is not known.
The collection has been compiled by the museum working with Chris Wild - who founded the past pictures website Retronaut.
He has spent the past year mining the photographic collection of the Woodhorn Museum and Northumberland Archives for fascinating treasure trove which will be exhibited from September 27.
Chris, 44, from Oxfordshire, said:
Chris said the photographs of people pulling faces in the archive were perhaps the most fascinating aspect of his research.
