Favorite Picture Rerun

Another of my very favorite old family pictures - this one from my husband's family most likely taken in the 1890's.  The little baby on the left is his father, Harry, and the sweet little girl standing next to him is Harry's sister, Ethel.  The family would later grow by three more boys and one more girl.   It's hard to tell what the setup is that little Harry is seated on.  Looks almost like a chair covered by something furry - a little odd to say the least.   I love the expressions on the little faces and the pretty little dresses they wear.  What a sweet picture.  (Click to enlarge)


  1. My dad had a photograph of himself in a dress which was never revealed until after he died!

  2. That furry thingie looks like a pair of chaps! Adorable kids, weird setup.
