Peek a boo!

photo-45

Surprise!

When I saw this photo, I had to have it. My friend and I (both moms) giggled at the baby’s expression. It’s just so funny! It’s as though someone behind the photographer just played peek a boo with her and she is startled to see them. Her hair, although a bit blurry, reminds me of the cute “hair bow” I posted a few years ago in this photo. It looks as though the hair was curled into the shape of a bow on top of her head.

The unnamed baby was photographed by H. J. Corell of Mt. Jewett, PA. While I didn’t find any information on the photographer, I did find information on the embossing the photographer information on the cabinet card. It appears that embossing on the front of the card such as this was popular between 1894-1900.

    That baby thinks Mr. Corell’s mustache is most impressive!
