CHILD BRIDE AND CHILD GROOM IN NEW YORK

CHILD BRIDE ANDWhat an interesting image! The subjects of this Cabinet Card photograph appear to be a young girl and boy dressed as bride and groom. Another possibility is that this may be a photograph of  two midgets, perhaps from a traveling show. My guess is that judging by their appearance, these are children and probably siblings as they seem to show a family resemblance to each other. What do you think?
