Oddly, I have seen several cabinet cards by different photographers, and with different children, all wearing the same mysterious Atlas Flour inscribed bib. Were they taken as part of some contest to become the next Atlas Flour poster child?

Image in overall fine condition some lightening of highlights and a lightened area on child's left foot.
