This is perhaps a “hidden mother” photo. It appears as though there is a figure under all the drapery. Most likely to keep the baby still and content during the photo shoot. IN the photo are two young tow headed children, both wearing dresses. Most likely this image is of two boys, but the infant could be a girl. This is a studio shot against a painted background.
