    • 03/Jan/2014 22:36:00 Nijinsky's Wikipedia entry indicates,"Nijinsky arrived in New York 4 April 1916." This matches the barely legible date written on the negative, 4/?/14

    Thank you swanq for putting the parents with their daughter. Looks as if both photos were taken in the same sitting. We'll add the dates to the records the next time we update.
