Victorian hidden mother photos

In Victorian England, photo exposure times were up to ten minutes long

Mothers had to sit with their children, disguised (hilariously, obviously and somewhat creepily) as just a 'prop' to be able to hold the children for extensive times without distracting them

The result are some bizarrely-only-in-the-past-would-this-make-sense portraits

Here are a few more plus an article about them
