Vintage Photos Celebrate Mothers Around the World

For Mother’s Day, see how moms have cared for their children for the last 100 years.

Balancing an infant on her hip. Cradling one child while holding the hand of another. Caring for a baby while finishing her work.

The mothers in these vintage images strike familiar poses that span the globe and cross cultural and geographic barriers. Their clothing and hairstyles may differ, but their actions are similar, showing that a mother’s love is universal.

Mother’s Day itself is over 100 years old and has a somewhat dark history, originally founded by Anna Jarvis to honor mourning women, remember fallen soldiers, and work for peace.

“For Jarvis it was a day where you’d go home to spend time with your mother and thank her for all that she did,” historian Katharine Antolini of West Virginia Wesleyan College told National Geographic in 2014. “It wasn’t to celebrate all mothers. It was to celebrate the best mother you’ve ever known—your mother—as a son or a daughter.”

These photos show the ways different mothers around the world have supported children—their own, their neighbors’, and even those of strangers—through the ages.

Sidonie a plus d’un amant

Triolets fantaisistes/ Charles Cros (Sidonie)
Sidonie a plus d’un amant, C’est une chose bien connue… Qu’elle avoue, elle, fièrement.
Sidonie a plus d’un amant Parce que, pour elle, être nue Est son plus charmant vêtement.
C’est une chose bien connue, Sidonie a plus d’un amant.
Elle en prend à ses cheveux blonds Comme, à sa toile, l’araignée Prend les mouches et les frelons. Elle en prend à ses cheveux blonds.
Vers sa prunelle ensoleillée, Ils volent, pauvres papillons, Comme, à sa toile l’araignée, Elle en prend à ses cheveux blonds.
Elle en attrape avec les dents Quand le rire entrouvre sa bouche Et dévore les imprudents.
Elle en attrape avec les dents. Sa bouche, quand elle se couche, Reste rose et ses dents dedans.
Quand le rire entrouvre sa bouche Elle en attrape avec les dents.
Elle les mène par le nez Comme fait, dit-on, le crotale Des oiseaux qu’elle a fascinés.
Elle les mène par le nez. Quand dans une moue elle étale Sa langue à leurs yeux étonnés,
Comme fait, dit-on, le crotale Elle les mène par le nez
Sidonie a plus d’un amant, Qu’on le lui reproche ou l’en loue Elle s’en moque également.
Sidonie a plus d’un amant. Aussi, jusqu’à ce qu’on la cloue Au sapin de l’enterrement Qu’on le lui reproche ou l’en loue, Sidonie aura plus d’un amant.
Fanciful triplets / Charles Cros (Sidonie)
Sidonie has more than a lover It is a well known thing That it, she says, proudly. Sidonie has more than a lover Because, for her, be naked Is his most charming clothing. It is a well known thing, Sidonie has more than one lover.
She takes her blonde hair As, to its Web, the spider Takes the flies and the Hornets. She takes her blonde hair. To his pupil in a sunny, They fly, poor butterfly, As, to its Web the spider, She takes her blonde hair.
She grabs with teeth When the laughter opens her mouth And devours the unwary. She grabs with teeth. Her mouth, when she lies down, Remains pink and his teeth inside. When the laughter opens her mouth She grabs with teeth.
She leads them by the nose As, say, the rattlesnake Birds that it has fascinated. She leads them by the nose. When in a pout it spread His language to their astonished eyes, As, say, the rattlesnake She leads them by the nose
Sidonie has more than a lover What is the reproach of him or rented it It is fun also. Sidonie has more than one lover. Also, until on the nails The FIR of the funeral What is the reproach of him or rented it, Sidonie will be more than a lover. (Translated by Bing)

Tidbits and notes posted on FB and Twitter. Part 199

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pa attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

White supremacist Richard Spencer finds his model in the state of Israel: “You could say I am a white Zionist, the Jewish state  of Israel is the most important and perhaps most revolutionary ethno-state that I turn to for guidance.”

What ethno-democracy means? Israel prime minister described the Arab citizens of Israel (Palestinians) as a “demographic threat”; the education minister who settled a cabinet debate by saying “I’ve killed lots of Arabs in my life and there’s no problem with that”; or the justice minister who called Palestinian childrenlittle snakes.” It doesn’t matter what the nations of the world say.” And the public security minister said at the beginning of 2018. “The time has come to express our biblical right to the land.”

Before the two-state idea (Palestine/Israel), the early leaders of Israel’s left-of-center Labor Party did things like reward Jewish “heroine mothers” who had more than ten children and drafted “Absentee Property Laws” to make sure expelled Palestinians could never return to their homes.

The sinister solution is the term “peaceful ethnic separation” — an idea that has its roots in population “exchanges,” such as between Greece and Turkey in 1923, Muslims in India into the newly created State of Pakistan in 1948, the one-sided “transfers” like the expulsion of Germans from Central and Eastern Europe after the Second World War, the expulsion of the Muslim Rohingas from Burma and the vast transfer of Palestinians from their villages since 1948 and after each of the many pre-emptive wars. since then

Popular support for the most extreme form of “transfer” — outright expulsion — is widespread in Israel, often polling over 50 % among Jewish Israelis. particularly among settlers.

Is it just a Psychological Barrier between the Palestinians and Colonialist Israelis? The Israeli author and activist Amos Oz had organized the “Peace Now” movement 2 decades ago and the movement is currently not  doing well in Israel.  Amos published “Help us to divorce”; “how to heal a fanatic”; “A story of love and darkness”; and his latest “Scenes of village life”.

Amos Oz resumed his talk: “Israel cannot be but a deception since it is a State built on a dream.” A fictitious mythical dream. Particularly the dream of US Evangelical Zionists who believe firmly that Second Coming will happens when Jerusalem is Jewish

Israel’s Newest Allies: The US and UK White Nationalist Right, famous anti-Semitic movements have come to admire modern Israel’s “ethno-nationalism, ethnic cleansing activities.” Harry Blain
