It is an image that is valid for other graphic or photo editors in OffiDocs such as Inkscape online and OpenOffice Draw online or LibreOffice online by OffiDocs.Horace and his 1/2 sister, Beatrice, possibly when they lived in Gardena. To me, this looks like it may have been shot in a studio. I base that on the odd piece of furniture, the controlled lighting, and the signature. Also, while it appears this has a second piece of matting surrounding the actual photograph, it's really all printed on one piece of paper. The apparent shadow at the two corners is printed. :)
I'm thinking Horace was in the 3 - 5 years old range, which would make this picture around 1910.
Apparently Beatrice really hated her 1/2 brother, and I think it shows in this early picture of the two of them. I don't know if that came exclusively from her own feelings of having an interloper taking time away from HER mom, or if it was Nanny more directly, whether by chance or design, influencing her opinion. Or perhaps it was something else entirely. I do know it was difficult for Nanny to accept her husband having fathered another woman\u2019s child, and she likely expressed that overtly one way or another over time. What I do know is that I don't believe I\u2019ve ever seeing a picture of her with anything even approaching a smile on her face.
It is my understanding that Beatrice was a real right-wing John Bircher type nut case. She married a wealthy man and moved to Switzerland. I think I may have met her when I was very young, but I may well be mistaken. As it turned out, Horace was the dutiful child, not Beatrice. Our folks remained in the U.S. until their respective parents died. I've always felt good riddance to Beatrice.
