Siblings Photo

This is such a cute photo of three siblings.  The boy looks a bit bored with the whole process – even though he is cute in his Little Lord Fauntleroy outfit!  The suit dates this photo to the late 1880’s or early 1890’s.  Since the girls have the beginning of the large leg ‘o mutton sleeves of the 1890’s, that’s a closer bet for this photo.

Rice Photography of North Manchester, Indiana, took the photo.  The embossed name of the photographer puts this into at least 1894, and so does the even scalloping along the edges of the card.  No design on back of the card puts us to 1898.

Any thoughts?
