mom and kid

This CDV features a portrait of what is most likely two sisters. The older girl appears to be a teenage sister rather than the baby sister’s mother. The two sibling are both pretty in their white dresses.The teenager’s dark hair falls down to the middle of her back.The older sister is holding her siblings hand. The younger sister is wearing a cross on a necklace. The photograph was produced by the Boehringer studio in Athens, Greece. Karl Boehringer was the proprietor of the studio and some of his photographs of the ruins of ancient Athens can be found in the Getty Pictures collection.

  1. Talk about a set of twins, Wow! Interesting photo, Thanks…

  2. Good find! Looks like it is in really fine condition too. The photographer appears to be of some importance too.

  3. So beautiful, I love how they are holding hands. Little one could also be a boy… http://eliaserver.elia.org.gr/elia/site/content.php? sel=22&showimg=true&firstDt=42&present=536511 . Quite clear image too, with the cross and broderie anglaise visible on the baby’s dress.
