It could be also that he was using a cheap lens and it's only sharp in the center. We're so used to seeing small f-stops with everything in focus in these old pics. You know, 'sunny 16"!

But how would a cheap lens blur the film grain?

My guess is that he blurred the outer parts of the image in post to bring more attention to the subjects. Is there such a thing as a focus vignette? ☺
