with apologies to Ogden Nash...
Probably Chinese tracklayers.
In defense of those guys, film exposure time in 1885 was still relatively long and they were told to stand perfectly still, probably for at least several seconds. I feel bad for the two guys on the left who had to hold the railroad tie still while the exposure was being made.
Oh I know,:-) anytime there was a camera present in those days, everyone came to be in it. Sometimes there is a dog in those pictures, he didn't know enough to stand still so he's a tailwagging blur!
