Toy Boats and Easter Pictures ca. 1915
Here are two photographs of James Henderson Moran IV. He was born April 7, 1913, the oldest child of James H. Moran III and Virginia Shumate. In this photograph he almost looks like a cupie doll to me and he's holding a toy boat.
The next photograph was taken in Memphis Tennessee at Milloy Photography Studio. He's holding a small Easter Basket and wearing a Little Lord Fauntleroy style suit that was popular at the time. He's also wearing white hosiery underneath those short pants and I just love the button up shoes. The only thing that seems missing is the straw hat.
The photograph was annotated: I came to bring you Easter joy and brought my basket to help gather eggs. With kisses From James.
