Stylish - for an upper class four year old in 1894.

From the look on his face, I doubt he'd be pleased that 121 years later this picture would appear on a worldwide interface. I bet he hoped no one would ever see him in the outfit.

Haha actually I was going to say he looks really comfortable and snazzy in this! Maybe he'd be a fashion designer today

I get the impression he'd much rather be playing outside than having his picture taken but he's a cute kid!

We forget often how things used to be. Want light flip a switch. Heat turn it on. To have a happy healthy family was not so easy. What the mother must have gone through. What loss. At least the memory lives on.

Little Lord Fauntleroy suits were very common then although traditionally they were cut from velvet-and young master Eastman merely has the collar and cuffs. Mothers loved dressing their sons up like the character from the book and at least Warren isn't sporting the long curls that popularly accompanied this style. Some boys inevitably got hassled (as did the character in the book) for being "sissies" but this didn't dissuade enthusiastic parents who wanted their boys to emulate that angelically good mama's boy.

My gosh, his poor mother! She apparently had a stillborn daughter, then lost her son in 1918, and then in 1925 she lost both her husband and her daughter-in-law. She finally died in 1929, no doubt a heartbroken woman. A whole family gone in just 2 generations.

Was he a member of the Eastman/Kodak family? Considering it was 1894, this child is very well dressed.

Then photo is so clear. Doesn't seem possible that it was taken in 1894. The boy in the photo is long dead and yet this photo seems so modern.

Very sad. And so close to the end of the war. He was a great man, very smart. Such a sad loss. I have been gathering all information on him, writing and remembering him.
