unknown Baby picture

I bought this picture in Van Buren Ar. It had been raining that day and I hated to walk away from this piture. I asked the lady that ran the yard sale about the picture if she knew anything anything about it. She said her sister buys up unwanted storage buildings across the line into Oklahoma and resells the items. I got the glass off the picture before it started sticking to hard to the glass. Some of the picture tore. If you know anyone that might be this baby (I would say it was taken in the 50's)please contact me, I would like to get it back to its family. kitty72956@aol.com
