What it is:

Photo measuring 3.75 x 5.5 inches.  (It had been glued to a cardboard frame/backing that was so damaged I ultimately removed it.)

What I know about it:

Nothing!  Undated and unidentified.

Here we go again with the ambiguously-gendered children’s attire.  I’m guessing boy on the left and girl on the right?  Probably brother and sister?  They look cute, even if they also look like they’re already quite comfortable with their station in life.

  1. What strikes me about so many of these childrens’ outfits of this era are the loose belts and other decorative features. How can those children play without perpetually catching their clothing? Or perhaps they just quietly sat while wearing their “Sunday best”.

    • I’m guessing you’re right in that these are “Sunday best” clothes, for church, visiting grandparents, posing for portraits, etc. They probably had other clothes for romping around in the yard. But yes, these outfits look like calamities waiting to happen.

  2. I thought the same on gender, boy on the left until I saw bows on the shoes. Would they really have a boy with bows on his shoes?
