The Baby arrived in 2013 as a small  black-and-white silver gelatin photograph printed on prepared paper sold by Kodak and others for the purpose of making your own photo postcards. They came in typical light proof packaging.  The  emulsion was on one side of the paper and the other side was printed with "place stamp here", "address" and "message".  Neither addressed nor posted,  the card with this image of a  lovely child in a big ceramic bowl was probably contact printed on only half of the available image space.   It's about 100 years old,  (Circa 1914).
