Toddler 1, Ryan Gosling 0

The Daughter just asked why I was snickering at Public History Ryan Gosling, and I am afraid my explanation as to why it was funny was not particularly satisfying. (Though we have established that the name of the boy in all the pictures is Ryan Gosling.) Somehow, I do not think this was a scenario PHRG’s creators had in mind when they wrote about some of the difficulties in engaging the public through such a project.
