    Hello, this is an old photograph of three children--it really spoke to me because of the bird on the shoulder. Thanks for looking!

      GREAT image and very desirable among collectors!

      What size is it? Is it a US photographer?

      Hi Scott, thank you! It is about a 5 x 7. Unfortunately someone glued it to like a heavy cardstock paper--so I cannot see the back and there isn't photographer on the front. I will have to dig out all my old photos sometime to share. This one is always out, laid on a desk. And thank you amiga Virginia! Pets and toys are great in old photos, you're so right! :)

      It should be 4 1/4" X 6 1/2" and would be called a cabinet card. It was originally made with the mount.

      Usually the photographer information is below the image on the mount and/ or on the back.

      It is not that uncommon to find them without the photog information-- the photographer just didn't want to pay to have the information on the cards/ thought word of mouth was sufficient for business.
