William Osler and his son, Edward Revere Osler, ca. 1897

Osler giving his very young child a ride on his back.

“Revere,” as the boy was known, would have been about two years old when the photo was taken. William Osler was fond of children and was known for his ability to put them at ease. Osler himself captioned a copy for this photo, “And on his shoulders, not a lamb, a Kid.”
