he  old   show  business  maxim,  often  credited  incorrectly  to  W.C.   Fields,  to  'never   work   with   children   or   animals'   might   well   have   been   a   frustrated   cry   of   the   early   studio   photographer.   Both   can   behave   unpredictably,   particularly   in   unfamiliar   surroundings,   and   any   proud   parent   knows   there's   only   a   brief   window  in   which  to   get   a   snapshot   of  'little   Johnny'   before  his  attention  wanders.  It  would   have  been  tricky   for  daguerreotypists  and  early  wet-­‐plate  practitioners   to  persuade  young   children   to   endure   absolute   stillness   for   the   lengthy   exposure   time   necessary.   Any   movement   and  the   child's   face  would   be   smudged   into   anonymity   Fig.   1.  The   techniques   used  for  adults,  such  as  neck  clamps,  didn't  work  as  well  with  children.    Consequently  many   early  portraits   of   children  will   show   them   held  Airmly  on  laps  and   between   legs,   in  some   cases  attempts  being  made  to  disguise  the  presence  of  an  adult,   often  with  comical   results   Figs.   2,3.   Smaller   children   were   often   tied   to   a   chair   with   a   bow   around   the   waist.   For   babies,  to  be  frank,  the  easiest  option  was  for  them  to  be  asleep  Fig.4.

But   then   I   found   this   collection   of   miniature   bisque   dolls   on   ebay   and   the   baby   in   the   middle   deAinitely   reminded   me   of   Myrtle’s   doll   and   this   baby   has   “Japan”   stamped   or   etched  on  the  back.   [Link]     The   seller  suggests  it’s   from  the  1930s.   Then,   I  also  found  this   other   collection   of  miniature  bisque  dolls   that  also  looked  similar  to  Myrtle’s.  Even  though   this   ebay   listing  takes  a  guess  at   the  date  -­‐-­‐  from  the  1910s  to  1920s  -­‐-­‐  we  can’t  be  too  sure   they   are   correct.   However,   after   looking   at   all   the   other   variations   and   time  periods,   I’m   thinking  their  guesses  are  pretty  close.  [Link] I   feel   somewhat   conAident   about   the   information   for   now.   This   doll   was   probably   made   sometime  before  or  around  Myrtle’s   birth   or  early   childhood  and  because  of  that,   it   may   have   been   a   toy   passed  down  to   her   from   her  mother,   or   it  may   have   been  one   that   was   maybe   purchased  and   given  to   Myrtle.   It   was   probably   manufactured  in  Japan,   or   maybe   even  Germany.  Most  importantly,  Myrtle’s  photograph  tells  us  she  deAinitely  had  and  played   with  baby  dolls  when  she  was  a  child.   RESEARCHING HANDMADE TOYS What   about   the   handmade   toys   like   Toy’s   handmade   tractor   and   hoop?   How   do   we   research  those   types  of  toys?   We   must  sit  down  and  visit  with  those  older  family   members,   ask   them   for  their   toy   stories,   ask   them   about  their  toys,   Aind   out  what   their  favorite  toys   were,   and  see  if  they   will   reveal   the   stories   hidden   in  their   toys.   Then,   record  what   they   remember  and  photograph  the  toys  if  they  still  exist.   Here  are  some  general  questions  to  ask  them: What  do  you  remember  about  the  toy? How  did  you  get  the  toy?   Who  gave  the  toy  to  you? When  did  you  get  the  toy?  Birthday?  Some  other  special  holiday? How  often  did  you  play  with  it? Did  you  share  it?

The handsome volume that, under the title of "Queen Victoria's Dolls," makes its appearance this month, with the gracious approval of Her Majesty, will call to the mind of many mature doll-lovers a host of happy childish recollections, in which a beloved wooden puppet was the central figure of the nursery drama.

Protecting An Antique Book I  have  a  bound  book   of  Godey’s  magazines   from  1862.   The   binding   is   falling   apart.  I  keep  it  in  a  soft  cloth  bag. Right  or  wrong?  

 It  depends?   The  soft  cloth  bag,   if   made  from   cotton   or   even  polyester,   is  Aine.   But,   cloth   does   not   provide   support   for   a   fragile   book.   If   your   book   has   a   weak   or   damaged  spine,  if  pages  are  loose,  or  if  the  covers  are  wobbly,  a  four-­‐Alap  enclosure   or  book   box   might   provide   better   long-­‐term   care.   These   products   are   available   from   library   and   archival  suppliers  (Hollinger  Metal  Edge  and  Brodart). Whether   you   keep   your   book   in   a   cloth   bag   or   a  box,   it   is   important   to   select   a   suitable   storage  location   inside   your  home  where  the  temperature  remains   fairly  cool  and  constant.   Avoid  excessive  moisture  and  exposure  to  dust,  pollutants,  and  pests. Congratulations  on    your  treasure.

The  Family  Curator How  To  Archive  Family  Keepsakes:  Learn  How  To  Preserve  Family   Photos,  Memorabilia  &  Genealogy  Records by  Denise  May  Levenick  (Family  Tree  Books,  2012) Available  in  ebook  and  paperback  from  Amazon,  iBooks,  Barnes  and   Noble,  ShopFamilyTree.com,  and  retail  bookstores.

Hover  over  one  of  the  corners  of  the  transform  selection  until   a  double-­‐sided,  curved  arrow   appears,  then  move  the  selection  in  the  direction  you  want  it.

When  the   image  is   following   the   direction  of   the   window,   hover   over   the   corners   again,   until   the   double-­‐sided   arrow   is   going   straight   up   and   down   from   the   corner.   Move   the   corners   in   until  the   image  Aits  inside  the  window.  You  can  also   move  the   image  around  with   the  cursor  or  the  up,  down,  left  and  right  arrows  on  your  keyboard.

That’s   pretty   much   all   there   is   to   it!   Just   continue   to   select   and   paste   into   each   of   the   windows  around  the  reel!

photo   into   a   gorgeous   one.   The   iCloud   synchronization   makes   those   photos   instantly   accessible  on  the  iPad  for  editing  on  a  larger  screen.  

I   already   have   the   Hipstamatic   camera   app   which   lets   me   experiment   using   combinations   of  Ailm  types   and  lens  rather   than  the  Ailters  found  in   most  apps.  The   retro  camera   workspace  at   Airst  looked   much  too  simple   to   generate   anything   impressive,   but   it   wasn't   long   before   I   was   experimenting  with  a  growing  collection  of  lenses  and  Ailm  types.  

Fortunately  the  digital  lenses  for  the  Hipstamatic  are   much  cheaper  than  the  physical  ones   on  a  standard  camera  and  there   are  a   number  of  convenient  packs   combining  interesting   lenses   and  Ailms.  If   you  could  see  your   way  to  stick  one  or   two   into  my  stocking  I  would  be   ever  so  grateful.

Did   you  have   anything   to  do  with  the   Flickr   increase  in  storage  limits  on   its   free   accounts   to   1TB?   That's   more   than   500,000   photos   worth   of   storage!   What   a   wonderful   gift   that   was.   I'll   be   putting   it   to   good   use   with  holiday   photos  this  year.  Flickr  has  impressive  organizational   tools   and  a  number  of  privacy   levels,  making  it  a  much  more  appropriate  place   than   Facebook  or   Twitter   for   sharing   those  special   family   moments.   Most   mobile  camera

and  photo-­‐editing   apps   include  export   to   Flickr   features   and   the  ofAicial   Flickr   apps   now   include  a  camera  so  I  can  capture  and  share  with  just  a  couple  of  taps. Flickr  Stackr  [$1.99]  for  the  iPad  is  not  a  camera,   but  a  great  way  to  view   photos   from  Flickr.  With  it  on  my  iPad,   I  could  easily   set  up  any  number  of   different   photo   presentations.   Who   needs   football   when   I   have   family   pictures  to  entertain  everyone  at  our  next  big  family  function. Photogene   [$0.99]   is   a   universal   app   for   editing   photos   on   either   my   iPhone   or   iPad.   It   provides   all   the   necessary   editing   tools   and   works   directly  with  the  photos  in   my   photo  library.  It  is  a  non-­‐destructive  editor   -­‐   always   working   with   a   copy   and   leaving   the   original   intact.   It   also   provides  metadata   editing   as   well   as   a   wide-­‐range   of  export   options   to   I   can  easily  move  my  photos  to  an  online  photo-­‐sharing  platform  for  backup.   I'm   already   enjoying   iPhoto   [$4.99]   on   my   iPad.   It   has   some   amazing   editing  tools,   but   what  I  really   love  is  the  journals  feature.  It   lets  me  turn  a   collection  of  photos  into  a  beautiful  story  in  just  a  few  minutes. Adding  iMovie  [$4.99]  to  my  mobile  apps  collection  would  make  it  so  easy   to   create   and   share   movies   on   the   go.   Just   think   -­‐   I   could   have   the   highlights   of   the   New   Years   Eve   festivities   edited   and   posted   online   in   time  for  everyone  to  enjoy  them  with  their  morning  coffee  .  .  . While  I   do  feel  my  photography   skills   are  quite  good,   there  is  occasionally   a  keeper   photo   that   isn't   quite  display   quality.  I've  discovered  there   are   several   apps  that  use  Ailters,  color   adjustments  and  art  effects  to   transform   a   photograph  into   a  work  of  art.   By  adding   a  few   of   these   apps   to   my   iThings,   I   could   rescue   even   those   few   not-­‐so-­‐good   photos   from   oblivion.   The   DistressedFX   [$0.99]   app   would   let   me   experiment   with   gels   (color   &   exposure)   and   textures   to   create   interesting   effects   and   the   Glaze   [free   with   in-­‐app

purchases   up  to   $2.99]   app  can   turn  those  photos   into   works   of  art.   Using  both  together   can  generate  some  amazing  results.

Having   wonderful   family   photos   is   only   one   part   of   a   family   historian's   purpose   in   life.   Telling   stories   is   another.   There   are   two   very   special   journaling  apps   that  I  really,  really   must  have.  The  Airst  is  the  Day  One  app   [$4.99  -­‐   iOS  and  $9.99  -­‐  Mac].  With  it  on  my  phone,  it  would  be  with  me  all   the  time  so  I  could  capture  those  moments  as  they   happen.  And,  I  can  do  it   with  pictures   too  since  it  includes  a  camera.  It  also   date  stamps  each  entry,   geo  tags  it  with   my  current   location  (when   set)  and   includes  the   weather  at   that   place   at   that   time.   How   amazing  is  that?  

There  is  one  part  of  me  that  Day   One  can't   automatically  capture   and  that   is   my  doodling.   Fortunately  there  is  another  journaling  app  that  will.   It's   called   Paper   [free  with   in-­‐app  purchases   up   to   $6.99]   and  it   serves   as   a   digital   artist's  journal.  Using  it  I  can  release  my   inner  artist   by   doodling,   drawing  and  even  painting.  And,  I   can  export  individual  pages   as  images  to   include  in  my  Day  One  journals  or  even  send  them  on  to  my  my  blog.

Elijah B. Core, (1853-1931) a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s portrait specialist, was the President of the PAA in 1901 and is listed with the New York City address of 572 Fifth Ave. Before setting up a studio in Manhattan at the turn of the century, Core had first been in business in Lincoln, IL from 1874-1884 and then moved to and established a business in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he maintained studios as E.B. Core & Co. at 56 W. Fifth, 1885-87; 58 W. Fifth, 1888-92; 206 W. Fourth, 1895-99. The Decatur Daily Republican of 15 March 1897, noted that Elijah B. Core, once a photographer of Lincoln, is to launch a fine photo boat at New York, to do business in coast and river towns. While running his Cincinnati studio, Core also shows up in the city directory of Newport, Kentucky, a short distance across the river from Cincinnati, where he also operated a studio at 111 Taylor in 1890 and identified as Core, Elijah B., photographer, 27 W 3rd in Newport in the 1892 directory. (2.) At around 20 years of age, Core established his first studio in Lincoln, Illinois, in 1874.
