Nancy J. Tobinabout this book: This book is a rare glimpse into history using antique photographs of children taken one-hundred years ago.
A book for children, photography collectors, and adults with a fond remembrance of childhood. Gone are the days when children played carefree outdoors with friends, and pets; climbed trees, and made go-carts and rode them down the hill. This collection of antique photos will delight anyone with an interest in vintage or antique photography. Compiled by a collector and photo editor. Most images never have been published before.
The author is a long-time photo editor for a major publisher and had seen so many of these charming photos during the length of her career that she started to collect the original photographs. The photos are all unusual - not the stoic portraits that are so often seen in historic photography taken in a studio setting. Witty poems written in the cadence of nursery rhymes of the era accompany the photos.
All-in-all, a charming peek into history using these remarkable photographs of the smiles, the grimaces, and the attitudes of children - all capturing a moment in time in the split second of a flash.
