Guardian Angel

Unusual real photo postcard depicting two children being saved by angelic powers of levitation when the plank they're walking across breaks. All three subjects look to be siblings, and there's also strangely very little sense of drama - angel girl and the boy with the jug both appear to be distracted by something that's going on in the corner of the studio.

Note also that the image shows some signs of after the fact alteration - particularly the removal of the stool upon which the angel is standing (see below), as well as some extensions to her wings.
