1800s baby photos

Flattr this!

This entry is part 18 of 20 in the series Cabinet Cards

Here are some baby photos from the 1800s, that were mixed in with an envelop! I don’t think that the baby photo, by St. Louis Photographer Bell Studios, came in the envelop as it’s postmarked from Miss A. Schenkel in Detroit (and sent to Henry Kellogg St. Louis). Whatever correspondence it once contained has been lost. The baby, presumably  E..? Warren Kellogg, looks rather crazy in the eyes, giving that unfocused gaze just past the camera.

The other baby is on a plain, unmarked, cabinet card and looks a little more recent.

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
