    Maybe so, SWR . All the Peace Medals I've ever seen in museums, though, are bigger......About the size of the rounds discs the woman in the picture is wearing. The coins in the mans hand look like dollar coins to me .
    I guess if this man was involved with some kind of 'secret society' that the meaning of what he was saying in the photo probably died with him.

    Re: Coded Photograph?

    Did you find this picture online? Maybe this family was celebrating a particular event by going to the photographer's shop. It's hard to tell anything completely out of context.

    Not as easy or practical as you make it sound.

    Re: Coded Photograph?

    Other than the ramblings of a man who uses modern day gazebos as clues to treasure hidden in the 1800's, what makes you think the KGC coded photographs? And just what kind of code would they be using.

    Photographers were not abundant back then and I would think they weren't too cheap either. Do you think the members of the KGC had a practice of getting their photos taken? Why? Were they mailing them to other members, posting them in their homes to identify themselves as KGC? I thought that's what the secret handshake was for.

    This gets back to common sense. If they are using a code that anyone can read and it actually is supposed to tell you something other than "we are members" then it has to be a known code that could be deciphered by anyone with the key. That would seem to go against keeping the society "secret". The KGC didn't have any of their own codes, they stole or copied every code they ever used from someone or some place else. To code a photo so any member or even just the upper echilon would be able to read it would require those capable of reading the code to not have to guess at what a symbol might mean which means there would have had to have been an actual code and not just some strange looking poeple who were holding their hands funny or had some weird object in the photo.

    Re: Coded Photograph?

    This looks like more of a staged family photo than a secret message in the photo.

    The photo was done in a photographers studio, very expensive. The photos of the time were quite often staged and many props were used. The boy looks like he is about to faint and is quite afraid of the impending flash.

    Many families of the time, when they got their family photo done, dressed in their finest clothes and often wore borrowed clothing. They wore their finest jewelry, and he may be showing off his booty from selling his crops, stock, or a payment of some kind. Or the coins may be the photographers and he thought is would a bit of flair to an otherwise drab photo of a typical Indian family of the area.

    There are lots of reasons the coins are there. I have seen photos where the subjects, being dirt poor, save and finally had enough to have a family portrait taken. They wore borrowed clothes, borrowed jewelry, and the coins spread about on the floor and in their hands were borrowed as well. My father has this particular photo on an ancestor and his parents and sibling.

    Photos of the time would not have been used for such a frivolous manner as just to show a secret code that not too many people would ever see.
    Don't hate me because I am beautiful, there are so many better reasons.
