Baby with an Almost Hidden Mother - Tintype

I am in love with this tintype! Don't worry my husband loves it too so he is not jealous. A sweet baby with pink tinted cheeks sits on the lap of a young woman. A drape hangs behind the baby that may have been intended to hide her but a sliver of her profile is seen on the right side. A paper sleeve or album page would have hidden her but I am so pleased that she snuck into the frame.

Hidden Mother
