I love it when I find seriously interesting shit. This photo is from The Museum of Ridiculously Interesting Things, and is on a post about a Victorian phenomenon called 'hidden mothers' where parents posed with children 'hidden' by covers of fabric or sheets. Whether it was to keep the kids still, stop them crying who knows. It's suggested that in some of the pictures, the hidden mother is holding a dead child.
