In one frame, neatly dressed majorettes demonstrate the synchronization of a dance troupe. In another, members of a tram club peek their heads above trolley platforms. No matter the subject matter, there’s something aesthetically and emotionally fulfilling about seeing these precisely arranged people standing proudly amongst their peers, happy to pose for a hobby they must love. Even the image of the Butchers’ Friend Society turns the grotesque appearance of raw meat into a token of the group’s unity.
