This vintage photograph captures a young boy doing something rare for his time. The unusual activity is the fact that he is smiling and even more rare is that he is exhibiting a broad smile. The child is cute and nicely dressed. Note his terrific cap and high shoes. The photograph was taken at the Moore studio in Lancaster, Ohio. The photographer was Charles T. Moore (1866-?). He is listed as a photographer in the 1900 and 1910 US census. He lived in Lancaster and was married to Stella Moore. The couple had at least two children, both were girls. The photograph measures about 4 1/4 ” x 6 1/2″.
