Manikin
(493 items)

This is a photo of 2 little girls holding their dolls or sharing them . I love it . Dates from around 1910-20 by clothes . Holding 2 German bisque dolls . The photo tells the story I need not explain the importance of the photo :-)

    Love the photo, almost as if taken on basement steps, a rather strange background !~

    @ Phil do you see how worn the step is behind them ? I was thinking maybe a outside porch . Hard to tell with ornate banister . Thank you for the love !**

    @Scott I am not sure what you mean what format ? Sorry I am not to smart in those area's of photo's. I just know jpeg and mp3 formats. I know you mean something else . I know it is just a photo on some kind of paper it is not a post card . Can ya help me out friend :-)
  9. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 1 year ago
    I see the newel post is the kind that would be suitable for a statue, unless they used anything they had lying around for the back steps.

    Just curious about the size and format-- Real Photo Postcard/ large silver gelatin print, snapshot....

    The one stair that is situated around the head of the girl is very well worn, showing much use.
  12. Manikin Manikin, 1 year ago

    I wonder if it is the back entrance to a tenement, that could explain all the foot traffic needed to wear those treads down. Could be a new German immigrant & her new friend.
    All speculation of course:-)
  16. Manikin Manikin, 1 year ago
    I thought it was a entrance step and you maybe right that several people used it Walksoft and wore steps down . The girls are precious barefoot :-) Thanks for the love Bro !***

    Thank you Gargoyle :-))))) I appreciate you stopping and putting some love on this photo !****

    If you look closely at the posts on top and to the right at the bottom of what I think is a door, it is probably a small porch that has had a Lot of traffic in and out.

    If it was a tenement type building they could have upwards of 20 families living in them. I couldn't imagine living in those conditions.

    I'm wondering if the child on the right could be a little boy? The child doesn't look all that happy and it could be because he was coerced into wearing a dress and playing with dolls:)

    Hi sara , I was studying photo and it appears the darker girl has a birth defect . her proportions and her hands . I believe she is a girl not a boy I think she was shy about getting photo or scared by camera she is not very old and may never seen a camera like those old ones ,where the photographer had his head under cover . Thank you for trying to figure out photo I appreciate you writing . Come again soon .:-)
