Pic of the Week (#136) - Sweet Smiling Siblings

Every Friday The Psychogenealogist shares a "Pic of the Week." The intent is to encourage thought and imagination about the spaces where psychology, genealogy, and history converge.

I was delighted to find this very unique cabinet card photograph of two smiling children holding hands. There are no markings anywhere on the photograph, front or back. It’s near impossible to know who these children are, but they sure look like siblings to me.

This photo is particularly unique because you don’t often see smiles in late 1800s or early 1900s portrait photography. But, in my experience, when you do it is usually in photographs of children.


What are some of the earliest photographs of children you have in your family? Were the kids smiling? I would love see them. Please feel free to email them to us if you would like me to share them on The Psychogenealogist Facebook Page.
