This family photo is trimmed on edges, usually to fit into tight paper photo albums, as most were. Does not affect baby Norman's actual image in any way.

A beautiful early CDV with a beautiful young much loved baby boy in a lace dress and patent leather shoes. In the Victorian 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. You can see baby Norman focussing on his mom or dad directly in front of him in the photo, as if he is ready to talk. A beautiful and intimate family portrait.

I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint.
