Two

This week's Sepia Saturday theme image shows two little girls; I'm almost on theme with a girl and boy who are more than likely sister and brother.
It's another 'orphan' photograph without name, date, place or photographer's details. I'd love to know who they were and when the photograph was taken. Doesn't that serious little boy in his tweed suit just make your heart melt?

More heart-melting images over at Sepia Saturday.

Yes, he does!

They are so alike, they just have to be brother and sister. Can you date it by his boots?

They are sweet - and they look very much alike. Jo :-)

Definitely brother and sister. And if not they must be relatives of some sort. I am not an expert on children's fashion so I haven't got a clue about when the photo was taken.

Oh they are just perfect- and so stylish too!

It's cute how much their legs look alike.

Both on their best behavior :)

Whoever they are, they sure look a lot alike.

They really do look like brother and sister. And oh, what sad little faces they were wearing!

They BOTH make my heart melt!

Cute yes, but because they have those big sad eyes that were all the rage of cheap French paintings back in the 60s.

It's so weird. They look fairly prosperous and I'm sure their mom wanted them to be in their best outfits. But the little boy's shoes are so sad, so beat up. Maybe they were his favorites and his mom just couldn't persuade him to wear his new ones!
