There are actually six people present in this copyright 1898 stereoview card put out by Keystone View Co.
They titled it "Home Sweet Home", which is totally opposite a sweet home.
The main focus is a woman beating a boy's bottom with a shoe as he screams and begs. The father looks stearn and unhappy.
Between the parents, a girl has a boy draped over her legs like a dead child, either checking him out or going to 'punish' him too with her hand.
Just in front of the wall, another boy's blistered behind renders him in great pain and unable to sit down.
Over all, one of my more interesting cards to view.
