Wednesday's Child: Who is This Little Cutie-Pie?

I've been lucky to scan some photos from a very old album that I believe once belonged to my great grandmother, Johanna Bruhns. Grandma Hannah is in several of the pictures as a young girl. I also see photos of her parents, brother and sisters as well as her sisters' spouses and some other children. I've always liked this picture of a rather adorable little one, but I'm not exactly sure who it is.

At first glance, it looks like a little girl in a dress. However, after looking at Victorian child fashions, I'm now wondering if it's a boy. It's possible that it could be the son of Grandma Hannah's sister Matilda (Tillie) Bruhns and her husband, John von Sosten. John Jr. was born in 1905, and I think the fashion fits that time.

Who is this cutie-patootie from the Bruhns side of the family?
Maybe someone in my family will recognize the photo and let me know (Mom and Aunt Brenda, I'm lookin' at you!).

  1. It does look like a boy in the face......and that was the fashion at the time. I'd place my guesses that you're correct :)
