No, but I think the photo would be better if she had on underwear. You can bet that someone with a wicked mind will find it too enjoyable.

yes, it is circa 1900 and belonged to my grandmother. I think the frame is original, but no real way to tell.

I don't like it either . . .it would have been cute if she had on underwear. Thanks for reporting it.

James Morley
Not liking it is one thing, but I'm still genuinely interested why such an innocent picture, taken so long ago, would warrant being reported?
Dec 25, 2015 ·
Kevin Kheroux
It's because pedophiles get pleasure from seeing these pics.
Dec 25, 2015 ·
James Morley
I'd love to see the evidence for this being the case. Personally I think they'd be on Google rather than Ancient Faces! And surely it's better to keep innocent images like this totally normal rather than making them into some sort of taboo? But I also respect your views, and will leave it to Facebook to judge.

There were professional photographers who set up and photographed scenes and sold their work back then, just as they do now. I imagine there are many copies of this image still gracing walls today. Beautifully nostalgic and sweet pic. Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas!
