Unlike a lot of children photographed during and soon after the cabinet card era, this child is showing some emotion. It’s exciting to be able to stand on a chair and have parental  permission to do so. The child looks adorable in his/her plaid outfit. Note the pretty wicker chair. The Nast studio captured this somewhat unfocussed but lovely portrait.

  1. Darling child! Always sad when photos leave a family and end up as unidentified sitters, alas . . .

  2. Haircut suggests that this is a boy despite wearing a skirt. Skirt is probably a kilt which is a masculine garment. And in earlier times little boys did wear skirts for their first few years. I have a photo from the early 1900s of my father as a child wearing a skirt.
