Part two

:o Here's the same session, different pose.
My purpose for posting these pics is to illustrate that old photos can confuse as well enlighten--regardless of the physical condition of the photo. The "Brothers and Sister" restoration challenge(#9) piqued my curiousity with its name/identification. I wonder if Angel (submitter of the photo) knows the gender of the subjects or is presuming based on appearances.
By the way, I did very little "clean-up" before posting, 5-15 minutes removing specks and scratches.

Pat,
Love the pictures. I guess this gender guessing of old photos is harder than I thought it would be, even after Tom's explaination of how to tell them apart. So here goes, I thought in the first picture it was baby- boy, holding teddy bear - boy and one on right - girl. Now I think I will just say they are all boys.
This is kinda fun. Can't wait to see the answer but I know others would like to probably take a crack at it. Great looking kids no matter what gender they are.
DJ

answer

Tomorrow I have a pretty full schedule, and since anyone can follow the thread and guess before going on, here goes:
two girls and a boy (gold star to Ed). The boy, by the way, happens to be my father who died just last year. My grandmother is holding the baby girl in both of those pics.
In the original pose, my Dad is standing in front of his father, while his older sister--and that's her lamb she's holding DJ (I couldn't tell from this pic, but it's something I know because she held the same lamb in the picure a few years earlier) is in the middle. In the second pose, Dad is up between his parents and his sisters both have a parent's lap.
The year is 1920. A year later, another boy was born and joined the photo sessions. I think the 1921 picture has the girls in "girlier" (new word) dresses--and my Dad got to wear pants!

Exclamation NOT just for dress-up

In case anyone wonders
It was not just for special/dress-up/Sunday-go-to-meeting that boys wore dresses....as the attached attests. How those whites were kept white beats me!

Pat,
That was an excellent addition to an already interesting thread. I love history lessons. Funny though since I didn't much care for it in school. Loved the pictures. It was like walking back in time. I guess that's what I love best about this business.
