The intricately colored photo shows a veritable who’s who of the European patriarchy only a mere seven years before the world would be cast into war with the assassination of Arch Duke Ferdinand. This photo shows members of the English royal family hanging out with the royal family of Russia including King Edward VII, the Princess Beatrice of Great Britain, Grand Duke Vladimir of Russia, and German leader Kaiser Wilhelm II.

Even though it was nearly a decade before war broke out in Europe, it must have been a tense day in the Crimson Drawing-Room. Not only were most of these people at odds, but they had to stand completely still while a the photo was taken. And you think your family photos are bad.

Jacob Shelton is a Los Angeles based writer. For some reason this was the most difficult thing he’s written all day, and here’s the kicker – his girlfriend wrote the funny part of that last sentence. As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
