ca. 1905, “The Dance”, Gertrude Käsebier via the National Media Museum, Royal Photographic Society
I have never, ever seen a vintage maternity photo like this. I've very rarely seen any.
Beautiful portrait of a father and his three children. The informal pose is unusual for that time period. And yet it shows the love of this father who doesn't mind getting down on the floor with his little ones. I love the way the boy is hugging his father from behind and the way the father is leaning into his girls, it displays such tenderness. Glasgow, Scotland. ca.

The twins (or sisters) with their dollies! I love them all.
French Waterloo War veteran
1854, rare daguerreotype in which the subjects are smiling. These pictures took so long to capture that the people sitting were usually told not to smile because their facial muscles wouldn't be able to hold the expression that long, blurring the picture. (That's also why babies, like the one here, tend to look a bit fuzzy and surreal. You try to keep an infant still that long!)
Ziegfeld Follies photo. Very cool.
Vintage gypsy beauty
Veteran of Waterloo with his wife, 1850. This photo was taken 35 years after the battle. There is no info as to the nationality of the veteran. The attire gives no real clues. One thing's for sure: there were no veteran's benefits for this couple judging from their rather scruffy overall appearance. .
