Beautiful portrait of a father and his three children. The informal pose is unusual for that time period. And yet it shows the love of this father who doesn't mind getting down on the floor with his little ones. I love the way the boy is hugging his father from behind and the way the father is leaning into his girls, it displays such tenderness. Glasgow, Scotland. ca. 1867
