For this weeks Sepia Saturday I give you a lovely little portrait I purchased at an estate sale. The only information I know is that "Glenn & Alice" is written on the back. On the front the photography studio is Knight in Falls City, Nebraska. I find the backdrop behind them fascinating in its detail.

I'd say the photo was taken close to the turn of the century, give or take 5 years before and 10 years after. Sweet children, but oh my the outfit the little boy had to wear. He looks out of proportion with that silly dotted collar at the end of his slender neck and the low wasted top. It's almost as if he's a bobble headed doll. I keep thinking there's a coil under his neck and his little head bobs side to side.
I do so love collecting photos of children. And if you're new to my posts I hope you take a few moments to look at my book Childhood at Blurb. It's a really fun little book full of moments in the lives of unknown children. No text, just engaging photos that I wanted compiled into one volume.
Also, you might want to follow me during the rest of the week at my blog because it is all about old photos, not just on Saturdays. Rarely do I have stories to go with them. Just images that I've found and want to share. I think you'll enjoy going back and looking at a lot of them.
Thank you Alan for hosting this weekly little event. It's always fun to see what others have to share.
