The Invisible Mother

Today I was in a very ambitious Antique store admiring--among other strange curios--old tin-type photographs. As you may know from this post, I have a real love for them.

I recently came across this post by on "The Invisible Mother."

Apparently, "This was the practice where the mother, often disguised or hiding, often under a spread, holds her baby tightly for the photographer to ensure a sharply focused image."

What a quirk of pragmatic thought!
