Photo Number Two
Brother and sister? Possibly. The little boy has a scar on his head, just to the right of his bangs. This photo is on a heavy duty backing..I am not sure what to call it. What do you think on the year? 1910?
Thanks for visiting! Do come again:)
*** I did some research, this kind of card measuring 4 1/4 by 6 1/2 is called a Cabinet Card. Cabinet Cards were in use by photographers from 1866 to 1906. Some were still used into 1920..but not many. See... you can learn along with me!
**** Update Oct 28, 2009
This cabinet card is black on the front and grey on the back.. equals 1880 to 1890
Black Cards were used from 1877 to 1887
The clothing..especially on the little boy..may be the clue..I am still looking
*** Norkio thinks 1885.
