Old Photographs ~ Article from Readers Digest ~ “Mothers in Hiding”


I found this in Readers Digest the other day. I hadn’t ever thought about mother’s being disguised in the pictures. I always thought it was amazing that the children sat still for the period of time it took to take the picture.  I can barely catch my children smiling and standing still long enough with a digital camera.   Now, I will have to go back through all my old photographs and see if there is anybody disguised. The photos I’ve recently reviewed do not have anybody.

I found some articles with more pictures of hidden mother’s. They are kind of scary and creepy and that doesn’t even include the one’s that are post mortem.

One thought on “Old Photographs ~ Article from Readers Digest ~ “Mothers in Hiding”

  1. How hilarious! This idea of a mother in disguise is entirely new to me. But I can see how this practice would evolve. I remember so much fuss made over our photographs as children–the setup seemed to take forever. Several of my pictures were taken in my mother’s lap — the mother came out of hiding.
