    In the 1890s photographers began to add photographic "frames" to enhance their images and set themselves apart in a highly competetive market.

    The example shows what looks like a plaster figure of a girl picking fruit from a tree. The framing is copyrighted by F.D. Toby, 1896.

    The child in the image has a "hidden mom" lending a helping hand in keeping the head still and upright.

    Reproduction of these images in any form is prohibited.
