This is a "hidden mother" studio photo. The child's mother would be behind the drape to the left readying them for the long 30 second or more exposure in the photographer's studio, quite a feat! The left has an area where we feel his mother or family member was removed. These photos are collectible in their own right.

A beautiful photo of Newel or Newell in his highland tartan plaid sash, so famous in the Victorian era. In that era, boys wore frocks with pleated skirts, or tunics and blouses over pleated skirts, until the age of three or five. Often you will also see a tartan sash. A portrait of the Prince of Wales in a Scottish kilt in 1849 gave rise to this vogue for boys. A rare and beautiful Connecticut Goslee family photo. This is an important DAR, Daughters of the American Revolution and SAR Sons of the American Revolutionary War family.
