  • Early 1900s in the living room of the Pfingsten Farm home in Schaumburg. Fred Pfingsten, in the foreground, also took the picture. The camera was set on a fixed object. Some flash powder was given a length of fuse, the room was darkened, camera shutter was opened, fuse was ignited, and Fred would then dash over and sit on the floor until flash powder was ignited. The camera shutter would then be closed.
