"Old Man Tad Was Rather Miffed When He Noticed That Everybody Was Ignoring the Wonderful Potato Salad He Had Made for the Block Party."

Once I read that caption, I just had to post this image from Turning the Book Wheel, the tumblr blog of the Smithsonian Libraries. It’s an illustration by Theodor de Bry (1528-1598), a master engraver and illustrator from what is now Belgium.

In 1590, he published Wunderbarliche, doch warhafftige Erklärung von der Gelegenheit und Sitten der Wilden in Virginia, a collection of images showing life in America. As you can see, little has changed over the centuries.
