Laughing and crying babies (at same time) picture

This picture was taken in the 1950's - the kids/children laughing and crying are my cousin (Cindy Lewis Sachdeva) and me (Andrew Murray Howe V) after I had just pinched her on her birthday (I am laughing). My father took it with a Graflex press camera made in 1919 with a Carl Zeiss lens (I still have the camera). All of our childhood pictures taken by him were the same quality, and a picture of my sister from the same time, from the same camera taken by him was a full page in the May 11 1959 issue of Life Magazine. He died when I was in early grade school. This picture is a familiy treasure - when people come to my house and see it on our credenza they assume it is a Hallmark card! It was taken in Cincinnati, Ohio (we grew up in Wyoming, a small town on the north side of Cincinnati).

    It is famous among family and friends. When people who did not know me in childhood come over to our house and see it on the credenza they think it is a Hallmark card stuck in a frame. Hahaha

    I see this on cards all the time. Today I even saw it on a billboard (which prompted me to do a search to find out more about the picture and led me here). Is it copyrighted?
  • Andrew Howe 2y

    Hi. Yes it is both copyrighted and registered. I am aware of one billboard in Chicago along with a few other commercial uses of the image that we are contacting. Is the billboard you saw in Chicago?

    It's sad that people tend to use it without having permission. I see it frequently being used on the internet without giving credit, and even altered.
