Frances and Mary Allen of Deerfield, Massachusetts, produced this photograph of a mother and toddler in a candid domestic "pose" contrasting with the more typical commercial photographer's studio portrait at the turn of the century. The emphasis is on ordinary, daily interaction between mother and child - the everyday tasks in everyday clothing.
