A Milton Bradley puzzle for children, dating from around 1870, depicts Uncle Job and Aunt Jemima, and one other young woman, posing for a photograph. In that era, the subjects had to sit for quite a while while the photographer exposed his plate--likely a matter of minutes, anyway. It is unlikely that Aunt Jemima could keep her lap dog still for that amount of time.
