“Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem.”
Amazing. I come from that line of people too. Or so I'm told.
Their faces seem exceptionally wide relative to the spacing between their eyes. I wonder if it is bone structure or subcutaneous fat. My bet would be fat.
Here in the western UP there are descendants of Finns and some Norwegians from the far north that used to be referred to as "round heads" but I haven't heard that in years. If you spend some time here you will see them around. It's structure. I sort of doubt that there was any extra fat on those people when those pictures were taken in the 1880s.---ken
