Room 26 Cabinet of Curiosities

Baby Party!

Posted in Beinecke Library, Shirley Collection by beineckepoetry on March 11, 2010

Happy children posing in historical vignettes from themed birthday parties, ca. 1910-1915,
likely in New Jersey. From a “baby book” recording events in the life of
one Helen Mary Stratz, born March 6, 1906, near Egg Harbor, New Jersey.

    I love these! Washington’s Birthday was Feb. 22, so I think that was the theme.
