There are as many as thirteen children in this family, all lined up in a row. Now look at the car…

You won’t see this anywhere else…

In those days, a large number of children, which is considered large now, but was not considered then, was the absolute norm. Now it will be very rare to see this.

Having children, even one or two, is still a challenge.

Now most families have 1-3 children. It’s like the old days! When our grandparents grew up in families with 6-10 children!

In the 1920s, this family, living in Boston, USA, came to the attention of local photographer Leslie Jones of the Boston Herald-Traveler magazine.

The family consisted of a mother, father, 10 girls, 2 boys and a baby, whose gender, unfortunately, is difficult to determine from the photo.
