Apparently, Dutch shooting galleries offer a unique challenge: If you manage to hit the target, it triggers a camera shutter, and your prize is a photo of yourself eye-a-squint and gun-a-shoulder.
Ria van Dijk, now 88, started visiting these shooting galleries in 1936 and has amassed a lifetime’s collection of photos that beautifully chronicle the passage of time.
Breda, July 1953
