Confirmation picture - young boy

Real photo postcard by Alonso, Barcelona, ca 1920. The reverse identifies him as Ernesto Batlle (?) Masso.

 

One of the most striking, yet obvious, differences in vintage photography when visiting another country is that based on religion. In a predominatly catholic country like Spain it was noticable just how many confirmation pictures there were, and I picked out one boy and one girl as examples to bring home.
