It's the scenery!
So often in old snapshots you see people enjoying a vacation. And often the pictures include someone out sitting on a rock. (Okay, or standing ...)
If you think about it too much, it's really kind of silly.
Okay, here are a couple famous ones. This is the popular tourist spot on Lookout Mountain in Tennessee. It has been named "Umbrella Rock". There are LOTS of pictures of this rock around with lots of people sitting on it.
They really noticeable thing is that nearly all of them are from exactly the same spot. Of course that may be the ONLY spot the photographer can get all of the rock and people into the frame.
Here are a few more. Go look.

It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.
