Photo Number 252


If this was an unmarked real photo postcard, I would say this is a little girl.  Following the rules..girls part their hair in the middle, boys part their hair on the side.  I would be wrong.

This is Glenn Arthur Goddard, this is an Azo Real Photo Postcard with triangles pointing up which means it is from 1904 to 1918.  Again we have a child wearing a larger belt, maybe it was a boy thing to wear the belt.  I got this postcard at an Antique Shop in Park Rapids..as you can see it was fifty cents.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

  1. I think it's a boy based on the face. This boy at almost 3 weighs more than my 3.5 year old daughter!

  3. Boys in dresses. I've told you, it's a category. We must collect them, confusing though they may be.

  4. That is one wild hair-do and dress for a boy... I'm so glad fashions have changed (and I hope this one doesn't come back again!)

  5. You got a bargain - it is a very striking photograph (whatever gender it may be)

  6. Very interesting. I have John's aunt's porcelain doll that is wearing a very similar outift with a belt and it is a boy. The doll is from 1900.

  7. Glenn was a big boy for not quite 3 years. Wouldn't it be fun if we could see an adult photograph of Glenn? Do you suppose he grew to over 6' tall? It's a fine portrait.
