Not only did Ritchey and I walk through many cemeteries on our trip, we did walk through one antique mall to look for old photos. The above postcard photo shows three woman – Jean, Nellie and Bella. Isn’t it nice to know their names?
Postcard photos were introduced in 1903, and became quite popular by 1906. Many of the old postcards have a design in the area to attach a stamp for mailing, and the design can be used to date the card. This particular postcard has no such designation, but it does have the name and address of the photographer – Whyte & Sons, 20 Union St., Glasgow, Scotland. Originally this company began with the father, James Whyte, and after 1906 it became known as Whyte and Sons. I would probably date this photo to about 1910.
