This photo is from my dad's first birthday.  Everyone looks so unhappy except for my grandfather who is smiling.  He probably had had a few.  The "unseen" part of the photo is that my grandparents had lost two children within the same year as my dad's birth and first birthday -- a little girl right around the time of his birth, and an infant near his first birthday.  I'm sure it was hard to look happy given all that was happening.  I really love this photo because it's so "our family", and shows many folks I never met.
