Mother, Father and two children

This photograph from the Green Fan Album features a mother, father and two small children. I think the children are boys. The setting is very natural, as if it were inside their living room. There is a mark on the photo next to the father’s mouth which makes it look as though he is frowning, when in fact it’s just a mark. The mother is quite lovely. The photo dates from around the 1920s by my guess, based on the blouse the mother is wearing. The photo itself is a slightly heavier paper than modern photos and has a lovely matte finish.

    beautiful family. andmore warm and personal for that time period, so many look so stiff, any writing in the green fan album anywhere?

    I like how the parents sort of lean inwards to the center and frame their children – the father might have the same nose as the fellow you presented in your previous entry.

    Early 1920’s, I think. I’m enjoying the fact that the man is now uncomfortable, with his stiff collar, while the lady is now wearing a loose and light blouse…and much more forgiving lacing underneath!
