Photo Number Eighty-Four

This photo is marked Edward Foley, it was also taken at the Weaver Studio in Walnut, ILLS.   I wonder what the connection is with Lizzie Foley in photo number Eighty-Three?   Any speculation is appreciated.  If it is indeed Edward I love his hair and his curls, they used to dress little boys in dresses..or maybe the person who marked the photo could not remember the childs name and marked it with the fathers name...this is a photo that came to me from South Dakota.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. What a sweet face on him/her! I love the hair curled over.

  2. What a lovely little poppit she is!

    Love Granny

  3. It sure looks like a girl. Pretty face regardless if it is a boy or girl. I wonder why they dressed little boys like girls back then???

  4. again... very much like some old photos in our boxes from grandmas stuff. but no names.

  5. Rae, they dressed all children in dresses because it was easier to get to their diapers. :-) No velcro or zippers, heh.

  6. It is definitely creepy that they dressed boys like girls for photos back then.
    I don't get it.
    Why? oh Why did they do that???

  7. Edward T Foley
    Birth: May 29, 1884
    Death: Nov. 2, 1968

    Ann M Foley (1886 - 1969)
