Victorian Christmas Photo Shoot
I love this postcard! I wonder how many times they had to take this picture--from her facial expression, the Mom here is about to drop from frustration. Her look seems to say, "Good Lord! Can't he behave?" Obviously that little boy didn't want to pose for the camera. It seems he never did. Meanwhile, his big sister is obviously playing the "angel." Don't you just love that doll she's holding?
Their clothing is wonderful! The boy's shoes just crack me up--how did little boys back then play outside wearing shoes like that? Of course, maybe these are his dress shoes.
I really enjoyed the decorations--that ball of mistletoe draping the chandelier, the elegant rug and flowered background, the carefully placed gifts, the candles on the Christmas tree--so perfectly Victorian.
