By and large, I don't collect photographs of babies. The fact is, from generation to generation, things don't change all that much with baby portraits. I can't remember where I got these photos, so I've had them fro a long time. Both came in folders. The one where I've shown the folder has stamped on the inside margin, "Gilbert's, PITTSBURG" No, it's not a misspelling, Pittsburgh was spelled without the "H" for awhile. The photo with the kid in winter clothes has printed on the inside cover, "THE NORTHLAND STUDIOS, CHICAGO, DETROIT, CLEVELAND, PITTSBURGH, CINCINNATI, TOLEDO, INDIANAPOLIS"
