Our first photo today is a mother and daughter. Isn’t the little girl sweet? With her large bow and necklace she is ready to be photographed. Her mother has the beautiful upswept hair that I love! This is a postcard photo. The AZO stamp on the card tells us it was made by Eastman Kodak between 1904 and 1918.
Our second photo is also a postcard, but has been trimmed to fit in a frame. Do you think the little boys are twins? They’re certainly adorable! And the wee one in the old pram! On back I see that it was sent to Mrs. Charles ? in Lansing Michigan. The postmark is Hammond, Indiana, June 10, 1915, and the scrap of message I can read says they are coming Sunday the 13th.
In the late 1890’s this diamond shaped photo was very popular. I think it must have been difficult to frame or put in a photo album! This handsome gent looks very dashing. On back we find this photo was taken by H. Mueller, No. 1129 Vine St., below 12th, Cincinnati, Ohio. You could purchase a life-size photo and 1 dozen cabinets for $3.75!
Our last photo is of a lovely woman who looks ready for a dance! She is Mrs. J. F. Porter – so rare to have a name! Her lovely shoulders are shown off by the black lace and ruffles of her gown. This photo was taken by Roshon’s Studio, 832 Broad St., Augusta, Georgia.

The photographs are lovely. You find the most interesting moments in time. Thank you for sharing. Could the last ladies photograph been done in Augusta, GA and not August, GA?
Yes, trying to get it posted! Thanks for catching that!!
We have a baby due any day and have made trips to Lexington due to false labor – even though this is a second child. I’m taking over at work for my daughter while she’s off and have been going in for a fresher course. Not had as much time for my blog!
Sounds like a trying time. However I know all of you are handling this well. God Bless All Of You. Marilyn
