Description
The sepia-toned photographs in this album not only show every attitude and expression of childhood, they also reveal how much children of the past 160 years are like children today. A little girl in 1921 Italy tries to make sense of a Houston newspaper. A small boy in a white suit looks dubious as his father combs his hair before a parade in 1942 California. Four Nubian boys from 1901 Egypt paddle out on logs to shoot the rapids of the Nile. The pictures also show children caught up in the history of the adult world, from young Richard Derby and Kermit Roosevelt Jr., in a 1916 pose with Teddy Roosevelt, to a dozen English schoolchildren huddling in a trench during a German air raid. Collected from the archives of the Library of Congress, and annotated by Pulitzer Prize–winning child psychiatrist Robert Coles, these images are not just documents but works of art, by such outstanding photographers as A. Aubrey Bodine, Edward S. Curtis, Dorothea Lange, Jack Delano, Toni Frissell, Russell Lee, and Lewis Wickes Hine.
