A baby from the 1880s...
We think every face tells a story. What was Gertie's story?
Gertrude was an happy, attentive, gregarious baby! Picture time was never a problem for her parents. No fussing, no crying, not even any fidgeting. All her papa had to do, was poke his thumbs in his ears, waggle his fingers, cross his eyes, poke his tongue out and blow her a big raspberry - and Gertie's eyes would open wide... and she would stare at papa for minutes on end. Mama always figured Gertie was thinking "Oh papa, if you only knew how absolutely ridiculous you look when you do that!".
