I LOVE these mirror images that show multiple sides of a child or beautiful woman.

This child has a great hair style and her mirror image appears to be staring directly into the camera.

The image was taken by Lentz Brothers of Peru, Indiana in the 1890s.

    Thanks for looking and commenting bratjdd. I think it is due to the hand being in the shadows behind her body.

    Thanks for looking and commenting toni. I am not familiar with Peru. I lived in New Albany for about 2 years!

    I have this same picture and another of the same child (who was a boy) with a younger child and two adult females. The pictures are from old family albums. I am curious where your copy was obtained.

    Thanks for looking cheap.

    I don't recall where I got the picture-- I collect and deal in antique photographs and have TENS OF THOUSANDS of examples.
