Sepia Saturday

The prompt this week got me to dig through some old family photos. I really liked the one below though I’m not sure who it is.

I know it’s a baby from my father’s side of the family and my grandfather’s generation. He was born in 189? and had 7 siblings. This baby looks pretty feminine but in those days boys could have been dressed like this.

A Kelly, but who?

    That hair-do seems more boyish to me since I’ve seen photos of grown men with the same look. But that off-the-shoulder gown is unlike anything I’ve seen. Something!

    What a beautiful baby – such an angelic face. Unusual dress too.

    The baby looks very happy. That does look like a boyish hairstyle.

    He looks like a very happy little chap – and his dress is something else!

      Talking with my mother she thinks it’s a boy. She doesn’t know who. We wonder if it is my grandfather’s family as they didn’t have that much money.
