Baby Link Roundup #6,419

Toddler Mussolini riles the crowd into a frenzy


Historical Photos from Shorpy blog. Click the ‘full size’ link on each page.

  1. Thanksgiving masking, 1911. Forget Halloween. On Thanksgiving you don a costume and go door-to-door hoping for pennies and fresh food.
  2. Baby wagon, made in 1808, photographed in 1921. Where will your plastic Little Tikes wagon be in 113 years? Yep, don’t make ‘em like they used to.
  3. Infant cages outside a nursery in 1946. And you thought was a joke. I’m guessing these cages were meant to keep out flying insects.
  4. Shop window filled with baby strollers, 1920, and a second one. Count on Heywood-Wakefield for quality wicker carriages.
  5. The saddest 6-year-old birthday party ever. Eleven kids. One sort of happy. Nice dress uniforms though.
  6. Garbage pail kids, 1912. Or, early adopters of ‘reduce, reuse, recycle.’
  7. Count the baby proofing violations in this kitchen. 1943. I count 10 if you consider the toddler years.

    I saw the “how big is will?” video on GMA and have now watched it about 100 times. What a cutie!

    OMG the baby under the floor! Wow kind of sad though that both the grandparent’s house AND the parents house turned out to be unsafe for children and they were taken into custody :(

    That video gave me a good giggle, thanks!

    Those historical photos are awesome. I love how the women in the last one just has her baby sitting up on that tiny table.

    Also I had no idea about the tagless issue! Thanks for the links.
