You can tell dad was trying hard to keep junior still, but didn’t quite make it’ That said, what result for a sixth plate image! The little boy hold his straw hat at his side and dad had placed his hand behind the kid’s head. Each of them had their wavy hair tamed for the photographer, although parted on opposite sides. Dad stayed so still, you can see the reflector/light source in his eyes. The image was resealed with filmoplast (not by us) at an unknown time and definitely needs new glass, as it has outgassed and dust remains here and there. That said the image is in fine condition, other than a little spot at the middle right toward the mat. They come in a half case.
