Clothes give it away, the first baby has a onesie of the 1970s style, not 1958. Second child Omarr wears green pants and the tacky wood bench things cream no earlier than about 1969/1970 to me. The cake photo is really cute. I can pick out Tyka and possibly is Duane between them, and Sharon is probably the one holding the baby (She was about 22 at the time).

.

Is the light skinned woman Mattie? Prince looks really calm in that shot, I wonder if he was interested in music yet at that age? They must have been pretty rich in 1964 to afford a colour camera. Heck even I have black and white photos of me as a baby.

that isnt Mattie and Sharon...those are Morris Day's family members....it was at a b-day party for Morris

Prince didn't meet Morris Day until they were teenagers. He became the drummer for the band Grand Central.

Please note the #justice4cuz at the bottom right corner of the photo. That is a hashtag often used by Prince's cousin Chazz Smith, who I believe first made this photo public. Morris Day just has it posted on his FB page, as do many others. Just ask anyone familiar with the history and they will confirm that Morris Day didn't enter Prince's and Andre's lives until the Grand Central years during high school.

what makes you think it's prince? is it just some random pic of a kid? anyway, the era of the pic looks too recent to even consider it to be prince.




Hi, PeteSilas. At least once a week I do a search for new Prince images. For some reason, this one popped up recently. Coincidentally, I have been immersed in Prince: A Private View. When I looked at the gaze of the little boy, it just immediately reminded me of Prince's stare in this now iconic Afshin Shahidi portrait. Not being a photographer or fashion historian, I didn't think of image resolution, the design of the child's clothing, or anything like that. Of course, I now know that it's not Prince...but, IMHO, the little tyke sure bears a strong resemblance to him.



Before this post, I was clueless about photo dating, for lack of a better term. I guess if I had initially thought to look for a picture of baby Prince, it would have been more obvious. Comparing it to the modern photo of adult P did not make that immediately discernible; however, this baby photo just instantly made me think of the Prince stare portrait. Nonetheless, when these two photos are placed side-by-side, it's easy to see the difference in resolution...but the similarity of the ears of both boys would have still given me pause.

U r wrong as well. That's no 80's pic! It would've had no color correction .....this is a st best a late 89 pic.

More likely it's color management equates it with modern era photography. I'd say this is from 91-96, it's slightly tan SLIGHTLY which indicates oxidation and deterioration of the print.

How someone could believe this is from the 60's is beyond me. U crazy.

One-sies STILL EXIST!

Which one is Morris in the photo? Whosevers B'day it was must be in the photo. There are 6 candles on the cake, so somebody probably turned 6.

Morris Day is not in the photo. As stated earlier, he did not enter the scene until high school.

My guess is the little girl next to Prince in the plaid dress is the B'day girl.

Also, when you find random photos online you can usually find the source by right-clicking.

With all due respect, i think its pretty obvious that neither one of those photos are of Prince. The first photo looks way too current(besides not looking like Prince, IMHO) to be a photo from the 1960's. And the kid in the second photo does look like a Nelson...Just not like Prince Rogers, Nelson.

The kid in the Birthday photo though, does look like Prince.

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.

Thanks, lemon!! heart I thought that might be Prince's birthday party, but I wasn't sure. Now, that you mention it, though, I remember when that lovely photo was originally posted on the Org.

I know I may be wrong, but the short kid with the slightly crooked eyes by the cake, he just says Prince to me. Sometimes you have a sixth sense with kids. Even though his smile may be real, the eyes on that boy, say something more serious and intense is going on in his head. It just feels like that is what Prince would look like as a little 5 year old.

And this photo from the Matt Thorne book, shows him in 5th grade (Aged 10) before he grew the afro.

[img]https://i.imgur.com/SHJJDLr.jpg[/img]

I have no idea how to make these show up anymore, some software has changed here?

.

Prince is circled and again like the child in the photo, he has light skin and a slightly prognathous (Forward jutting) jaw, and this fits in with the nickname the kids gave him - boxer dog (Kids are so cruel). I am sure that boy is Prince.

The face is too round/full, and the nose isn't quite right. Whoever it is resembles Tyka more than Prince.

Agreed.

Whereas that child in the cake photo has got Prince's nose, a thin head shape and his style of mouth.

How many of you saw that photo the first and were drawn to that kid with the almost fake smile and said "Prince". Even though he is smiling and part of the group, something on that boy's face says he is not there and like off in his own world (If it is Prince probably thinking about music or even girls).

.

It is a normal photo, but there is something strange and eerie about that kid, you get the feeling you get when you see one of Prince's more serious photos, like where he is head down in the studio or just looking at you. If the kid is not Prince, it would be interesting to find out who he is and what he does for a living.

The boy in front of the cake is definitely Prince, Adorecream. I don't read as much as you do in his face, but I am struck by his eyes. They look so, how do I say it, alert. Of course, he was as handsome as ever!!
