Holy shit: Garcia was born in the past. This shit is the past right here. There was a cholera outbreak ten feet out of frame; everything is made out of wood and prejudice. Men’s hair doesn’t even do that anymore, the wavy thing: hair just doesn’t grow like that now. (Probably the antibiotics in the feed chain.)
But they’re not old, are they? The Garcias: in this picture, they’re at least ten years younger than I am now. People in the past were more grown-up than today; if they weren’t they would die. Life was tougher. At the moment this picture was taken, literally the entire world was at war. Always remember: the past was terrible.
That city they’re standing in? just 36 years before, it had shaken and burned. (Now, sure: San Francisco will be destroyed any day now, but we have the innertubes; those of us not in San Francisco when the Big One happens will be able to keep updated on the carnage; that is much better, at least for us. For the people in the city, it will be the exact same experience as 1906.)
Also: Garcia is about to get Lion Kinged.
