Where are these 'cellar clubs'? They sound like meccas of hedonism. In the context of their time, wilder than a weekend in the bottom of Lindsay Lohan's purse.

A Little Belarski This Fine Sunday Morning

You can't get away from your relatives, even after they're dead

Before photoshop, photographers still found ways to manipulate their work. For this family photograph, images of people that couldn't be there for the photo (whether because of death, long distance, what have you) were inserted into the final product. So, the whole family got to be in the photo, whether dead, alive, or in jail for double-homicide. Pretty nifty. Not sure how they did it, but it's an interesting historical artifact.
