Your daily creepy

“Hidden Mother” Photos.

You see [in the 19th century], most infants during that time were photographed with their mothers holding them. The intended picture was ultimately headed for a frame or mat, so the child would sit in the mothers lap for the photo. When the picture was taken, the mother simply was cropped out to serve as the backdrop.

Thanks, J-Bro!

  1. Are we certain that these are all Hidden Mothers? Back in 1968, I had a photo taken of myself together with our 5 month old daughter and almost 3 year old son, so that they could travel on my passport with me. Unseen, thanks to hilarious gymnastics and careful cropping, is the Hidden Father, holding the squirmy little rascals in place (they both were desperate to get away).
