"Of all the photos we have, this one is in the poorest condition."

"That's because Grandmother carried the snapshot slipped between the pages of a Russian Orthodox prayer book that jiggled in her pocket as she escaped Russia during the 1917 Revolution."

ADDED: A post about the prayer book:
Why did Tatjana already have a Roman Catholic prayer book when she fled Russia? There's an explanation....

I certainly would like to see the other photos!

Another reason not to travel- the photos you carry with you get all jiggled up.

However there is still an error of fact within the headline. An error corrected in the linked source.

Is it an error to re-post an error that someone else has made? Even if the author of the original error corrected him/herself, does the ownership of the error now belong to the re-poster?
