Today’s Top 5

Nurse on the left

has sort of a Mary Poppins thing going on, what with the balloons and all.

That poor nurse

who is about to bathe the moldy baby has only one leg and foot to stand on!

[In this detail from the full version, you can see her other foot is behind the table leg. But what's really holding her up is that metal rod. - tterrace]

Similarities and differences

Although the onesies haven't changes much the babies and nurses are much more lifelike these days!

Lead

I wonder what the lead content of the paint flaking off the ceiling was. It was a major health hazard.

IMHO

This far out-creeps "Convertible Coffin".

Louise, over here!

just what is wrong with this child?

["Looks like he's coming down with a case of mold, Harriet." - tterrace]
