Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

No reason for the title in French, I just thought this baby looked sweet and small. I think (but am not certain) that there may be a parent hidden under a blanket holding the baby in their lap. That was often done (called Hidden Mothers by many collectors) as a means to have the child sit still and also to calm the fears of anxious parents, I’m sure. They just couldn’t be certain their precious child wouldn’t fall out of the photographer’s chair.

The photo was made by Rank Bro’s out of Van Wert, Ohio.
