Toddler in white dress. RPPC. Private Collection.
This little guy came with the bridge workers. Seems like all pictures from that lot came from the same family album, so I think this boy may very well have been one of the workers’ children. And he’s too cute not to post! He was made to pose standing on a chair with his immaculate ‘dress’ and worn out shoes.
Note how modern the chair looks!

A future architect! Private Collection.
Easily the youngest sitter of my collection! I usually don’t collect this young but this gorgeous photograph grabbed me. I love this cabinet photo. It took a talented photographer to capture this toddler at the right moment and with an expression of intense focus!
Photographers of yesterday didn’t have the luxury of taking dozens of photographs to pick out the best one. This here was true artistry and this photo came out wonderfully. In fact, this is so well done it is easily postcard material. The photo is well protected too with two overlapping flaps. I’m guessing this was taken in the 1930s or 40s.
