These two CDV portraits we think are the same Nebraska child. The first is marked on the back "Taken on his second birthday May 24th 1876". The second is marked on the back "Charley Rosewater age 7 - May 24th 1881". It is also marked "To Mr. & Mrs J?." The photo of the younger Charles is done by photographer E.L. Eaton, Omaha, Nebraska. The photo at age 7 is from the Grand Central Gallery also from Omaha, Nebraska. Other than where they lived, we know nothing about the family. Charley at age 2 wears a white dress with a dark belt. We can't make out much detail with his dress, but there seems to be a small dark collar. The belt which would be purely ornamental has a large buckle. He wears white long stockings with the dress. We are not sure when he was breeched, but at age 7 he wears a plain collar buttoning suit without any neckwear. He is holding his har, byt we can't see it very well. The suit is a kneepants suit. He has light colored, but not white long stockings. They seem to match his suit. Even at age 2, Charley's hair is cut short with a destinct part.
