About this title

Synopsis:

The images showcased in Victorian Children of Natchez have drawn world-wide attention. They have been featured in
exhibits in London, New York, Los Angeles, and Sydney, Australia, among many other cities. The images were printed
from the original glass-plate negatives and are amazingly clear. The details of the portraits include not only beautiful children but also their period clothes, toys, and other furnishings. In addition, children from all socio-economic groups are included. Whether one is attracted by the astonishing clarity and detail of the images, the timeless beauty of the children, or the nostalgia the images evoke, Victorian Children of Natchez is a wonderful look back through time.

About the Author:

Natchez, Mississippi, a river town where cotton planters made fortunes in the days before the Civil War, is the setting for Victorian Children of Natchez. Noted authors and historians Joan W. Gandy and Thomas H. Gandy have drawn from their collection of thousands of glass-plate negatives made by Natchez photographers Henry D. Gurney, Henry C. Norman, and Norman’s son, Earl Norman, to create a fascinating look at the town’s rich and varied history, as seen through portraits taken of the town’s children. The earliest portraits, taken during the 1860s and 1870s, show children as miniature adults, with their young faces reflecting a sober maturity. As the decades pass, both clothing and props change to reveal a changing attitude toward children.
