    I am always amazed at what I see in the hands of children in antique photographs-- actual guns, full size hammers, and now a nail!

    I guess the philosophy then was whatever it takes to get the kids calm and take the photograph.

      Thanks thriftfan-- I agree, some of the things I see in these antique photos would get parents in trouble today!
