1925 Crazy photograph of a Chinese young boy protecting his baby brother with a handmade wooden cage. It has been known for years that the Chinese were limiting population through favoring baby boys, but this is the earliest instance of such a practice in print we have ever seen! Issued by Kadel and Herbert, this is a fantastic image in great shape.
