"Hidden Mothers"

I LOVE old portraits. There's something so strange that these people had such different lives than us, and yet look so similar. For instance, have you ever seen the evidence that Nicholas Cage is a vampire? Now my interest has turned to antique photos of babies, of course. So I was baffled when I found this:

Apparently back in the day it was common for women to hold their children while covered (with curtains, blankets, whatever) and just be kind of cropped out afterwards. Wth?! If you'd like to see more weirdness, you can find it here.

  1. I've seen the Nicholas Cage thing but that type of photo is new to me. How weird and interesting!
