From "Why Didn’t People Smile in Old Photos?":
Want to be seen as upper class and as a person of good character? Don't smile.

In a letter to the Sacramento Daily Union, Twain wrote, “A photograph is a most important document, and there is nothing more damning to go down to posterity than a silly, foolish smile caught and fixed forever.”
