These do not seem to be a hoax. I cannot wait to see more of them.

So does anyone else get that odd and eerie gut level feeling when viewing the pictures?

I do not have good feeling about these pictures. At first sight they seem modern pictures made to look old and poor in quality.
Not a very good job at that either.

Maybe I am just too skeptical........And I have to include a disclaimer: I am not a professional photographer!!!!!

My gut level feeling is that they look awfully good to be that old. However I know NOTHING about photograph, its history, or reenacting for that matter.

agreed...these have a very high level of clarity, also if any of you have used a pinhole camera as a scout or science project, you would notice motion blurs of people moving as a result of the exposure time needed

True, very true, but if so, it's the best April Fool's joke I've seen today Big Grin Still, I've seen this done before with American Civil War photos, ya never know Wink

Ah, even better is this one: Big Grin "hey guys, there's a camera! Let's pose!"
