Dr. Scott’s Children, Box 85, 1948


We came already across box 75 with images of Dr. Scott’s children, and this box 85 has earlier images of Dr. Scott’s children Susan and Stephen.

Based on the indoor decorations, and the age of the children, I put this photoshoot in December 1948. The first shoot we looked at from box 75 was somewhere late 1949.

Joel does have the patience to work with children !

It’s also clear that Joel is doubling up on his shots to ensure he has something good to print.

Both Stephen and Susan had children of their own, so posting all the images in case a descendant is into genealogy.

There were 4 more dog images in this box, a very nice cocker spaniel with great posture. There are no references on the box who’s dog this is.

Two subjects Joel is photographing on a regular basis, children and dogs !

Cheers !
