Hidden Mother


These are some of my grandfathers brothers and sisters taken around 1900. What is interesting about this shot is - that it is called a 'hidden mother' shot. Why...because if you look at the little girl in the center - my great-grandmother is actually holding the youngster while being hidden underneath that tablecloth looking thing.
See what I mean...by the way you can see her keeping the child in place. I love 'hidden mother' shots because there are many different ways photographers tried to hide the mothers.
