This early 20th century image of a happy child is uplifting. It makes you want to smile along with the child. I believe this is a boy. The photo itself is scratched up a bit, but the jacket really took a beating. The corners are worn down and something spilled, leaving an oily stain on the upper right corner. Through it all, baby smiles. The child is also not wearing anything, so falls into the “undressed” category I have noticed in 1920s/30s photos.
The photographer was Michael’s at 657 Broadway, Lorain, Ohio.
