It was common at the turn of the century for photographers to try and sell their pictures to postcard manufacturers. It was also common to use children as subjects in situations you would not expect to see them in. This is a photographers’ proof and I don’t believe it was ever used on a postcard or published. I wish I had that kind of childhood .
