PORTRAIT OF FOUR YOUNG SIBLINGS IN EAST JORDAN, MICHIGAN (1893 BABY CARRIAGE)

This cabinet card portrait captures four siblings posing for their photograph. There are several things of note in this image.

  1. That baby carriage looks remarkably like a grocery shopping cart.

    • I had the exact same thought and almost wrote it in the description of the photograph. I also thought that the carriage seen in this image would never pass federal safety regulations. The grocery cart design at the front of the carriage would be extremely dangerous for a baby.

      • Reminiscent of the similar contraption shown in the family picture you posted on June 3, 2017 (Sorry … I had to look back and find it). Neither seems practical and looks like one device stacked on another…. but it does help pose the baby.
