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.
