Five boys, no girl

Five boys, no girl. Cabinet card. Private Collection.

The mother looks like one tough woman. You’d have to be to raise this bunch! She looks proud and severe, holding a bible in her hands. Oh no, you did not dare disobey mother in this family.

I’m sure she would have liked to have a daughter too, but that wasn’t part of God’s plan now, was it?

The father looks mellow in comparison. I’m not sure what he’s holding in his hand. It looks like the back of a cabinet card.

The brothers don’t look far apart from each other. I like how the photographer arranged this family by height, taking the photo horizontally with a white backdrop and the parents in the middle.

Photographer: Clinkenbeard. Palace Photo Car. Blank back.
