BlackAndWTF.tumblr.com is a photo gallery of weird, often creepy pictures dating back as far as the 1890s.
Creator Matt Stopera says the photos, like one of a group of Klu Klux Klan members riding a ferris wheel or another of a buff circus woman flexing, truly make a person go WTF, or What The Fþþþ.
Stopera combs historical societies archives and flickr to find these rare shots, and has even found a few freaky ones at his parents house.
Hes often surprised by the pictures he discovers, since he, along with most others, are used to more lame, posed pics of people.
Though all the photos are weirdly random, Stopera is most spooked out by photos of families with odd ventriloquists dolls.
He explains, Ive found a lot of those. It mustve been a thing back then. People take these dolls and pose them like theyre part of the family. Its really creepy.
