Barney Nelson

Cabinet Card. Handsome 7-8 year old boy sits in a nearly legless wicker chair, wearing shorts, white shirt, and loose tie, writing with his toes. He has foreshortened arms-- one with a small finger near the elbow should be, the other arm is shorter and has a finger near the shoulder. A metal frog inkwell is beside him.
