This baby is such a charmer. The facial expression, one hand in a fist, the other with a finger perhaps showing off a new tooth make this black baby picture a wonderful addition to any scrapbook or other project. Anyone looking for a copyright free African American baby image has certainly found one of the sweetest baby pictures we’ve ever seen.
Ida Waugh (d. 1919) is the illustrator behind this charming vintage drawing. It appeared in her book Mammy’s Baby from 1890.
