EYES WIDE OPEN: BABY POSES IN ROCKING CHAIR IN EAST CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS

BABY

This vintage photograph features a baby posing in a rocking chair at the Cambridge Studio in East Cambridge, Massachusetts. The baby is wearing a gown and has a necklace around her neck. Her expression looks like she is trying to make sense out of the situation as she poses in front of the photographer. This portrait is unusual in that the photographer chose to produce an excessively close-up portrait.

A WOMAN WITH SERIOUS HAIR IN VERMONT

WOMAN WITH HAIR_0002The woman pictured in this Cabinet Card has unusually long hair. Her hairstyle is quite unique and I bet she had to get up very early in the morning to groom herself for the day. The photographer of this image is N. H. Chapman of Cambridge, Vermont.
