What appear to be nine consecutive exposures of a young boy in different poses, his moods ranging from solemn to gleeful. With reverse photographer's stamp for "LeRoy Parkinson, Fox Lake, Wis[consin]."
It is likely that these nine images were produced as overlapping exposures on a single photographic negative (in camera). This procedure requires considerable confidence and skill on the part of the photographer, since one bad image would spoil the negative. The alternative, of somehow overlapping multiple negatives when printing, would have been difficult to achieve with period processes and glass-based negatives.
