Bedouins

This picture shows two Bedouin mothers, with their children. The picture was taken in 1900 in the middle east. Color was added by hand tinting after the picture was printed.

  1. The tinting is beautifully done. And the picture is timeless.

  2. I notice that these mothers' feet are bare.

  3. They are, Brother Dave, but
    they look well, solid, and
    the children are chubby-cheeked
    and healthy looking.

    Your right, SmartGirl 1953,
    the tinting work is excellent.

  4. I think everyone's feet were bare there and in those days.

    It's odd, isn't it, looking at the people in those photos and wondering how long they lived and what happened to them.
