    I’m sure it’s easy to find photos of groups of 3, but you really found the creme de la creme. The DuBois photo is my fav – those hats! Bare feet. I’d love to know the story behind it.

    Nicely varied photos of threes in the male division. Those first three look so young to be so involved in war!

    All of those young faces have a story to tell. Some, I think we might assume, had already lived experiences beyond their years.

  5. Wonderful strong vintage photographs, each telling their own story, through their pose and looks in their eyes.

  6. Fascinating demographic cross section of U.S.history as shown in a trio of trio photos. Well done!

    Really interesting choices for a trio theme, Susan. The first photo makes us wonder what those boys experienced during the war. But the second photo of the three Indian boys was taken in 1891, less than a year from the horrible Wounded Knee Massacre near the Pine Ridge Reservation. I was surprised to learn that the third photo was taken by W.E.B. Du Bois, the great African-American writer and activist. He taught at a college in Atlanta in 1897-1900s and did some of the first sociology field studies of Georgia’s rural black communities. I’ve read his seminal 1903 book, “The Souls of Black Folk”, but I didn’t know that he was also a photographer. Thanks for including the links.
