This vintage colored drawing of a mother and her baby captures a private moment between the two. Propped up in a chair and still wearing her nightclothes, the young mother plays with her child. The baby sits on its mother’s lap and is dressed in a frilly little white dress.
I love it when I find vintage materials like 1890 Baby’s Annual Pictures and Stories for Little People. It was published oh so long ago that it is now completely in the public domain. It’s too bad the original artist(s) weren’t identified but that is why this book falls under the 120 years post publication aspect of copyright law.
This image is copyright free and in the public domain anywhere that extends copyrights 70 years after death or at least 120 years after publication when the original illustrator is unknown.
