1892 photo shows perching children on water lilies

It wasn’t that long ago that we sniffed out this 1938 picture of a massive water lily lifting a dainty little kitten, so it’s funny to see the bar has raised with an even earlier photo dated 1892 showing even more of these giant water lilies lifting an entire family of kids in North Carolina — including a dog on a chair.

Says the note that came with it: ‘Perching children atop the massive leaves was all the rage in water gardens of the time’. Now, where can we find these water lilies in the world today?
