Sometimes a picture of a child sparks a connection, in this case it was Queen Elizabeth the 1st.

I sauntered off into Google land and came up with these wonderful paintings of Elizabethan children.

Then it struck me, of course this was their equivalent of Nousha photography! Wonderful paintings, oh for a time machine to return to that era with my camera.
