    This item consists of two Early 20th Century Photo Postcards of Children at Home.  One photographer shows a young boy standing in profile on a trunk at a wooden kitchen counter, molding a piece of dough.  He is dressed in a two-piece long tunic and short with a striped belt and front embellishment.  His arm and hand are a blur as he kneads the dough.  There are wonderfully background details including floral wallpaper, counter water pump and rows of jars.  The other photograph shows a toddler girl in a pleated dress with puffed sleeves and high button shoes standing on a parlor chair.  She is looking off to the right and screaming with delight.  Behind her is a half wall covered in an Art Nouveau floral wallpaper and a half wall of darkness.  Each black and white photograph measures 5.5" high by 3.5" wide and fills the whole postcard.  The back shows an area for a one cent stamp and the name "BADGER."  Neither postcard was sent.  These Early 20th Century Photo Postcards of Children at Home are in Good condition with minor surface wear.  The silver emulsion has tarnished giving each a silver glow particular in the dark areas.
