This is a "hidden mother" studio photo. The baby's mother would be draped behind the paisley woolen blanket holding Bessie up for the long 30 second or more exposure in the photographer's studio, quite a feat!
A wonderful old circa 1885 photo of adorable baby Bessie in her little hightop button shoes. Her surname is misspelled as "Boseworth" on the photo, but was actually Bosworth. Interestingly, this photo was found in Onondaga County, New York State, does she have family ties there?

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
