Hidden Mothers

The Hidden Mothers was a practice where the mother was often disguised or hiding, this was done by placing the Mother behind a spread or a curtain.

The Mother would hold the children that were placed on her lap tightly for the photographer, this to be sure that a quality photo would be taken.

When the picture was taken and ready for development, the mother would be cropped out of the photo
19th Century Phenomenon.

I find this absolutely fascinating, what do you think?  I'd love to hear from you.
