Orphan Photos #21 & #22

These two orphan photos may very well be a brother and sister.  Both of the photographs are cut in an oval and mounted on a board measuring 2-15/16” by 16-1/16”.  The boards are mounted on black paper (similar to scrapbook paper).

The imprint in the lower right corner reads:  Parks Studio, Keene, N.H.

There is no identifying information for this lovely duo.

This photograph is of a lovely woman, who is unidentified.  The photograph is cut into an oval and mounted on a board measuring approximately 3-1/2” by 7”.  Barely noticeable is the imprint in the lower left corner.  A rubbing reveals that the imprint reads: Lake City Studio, Dunkirk, N.Y.

One Lovely Blog Award

Who Will Tell Their Story? has been awarded the One Lovely Blog award by Holly over at Raeburn Family Odyssey.  I also received this award over a GenBlog; you can read that post, and see my award recipient here.

Thanks, Holly!


Orphan Photo #19

Orphan 029

This photo is mounted on a decorative card measuring 6-7/8” x 8-5/8”; the card has a beveled edge.

The imprint on the front reads: Stratford.

On the back, the following is handwritten:

Kenneth Guthrie          Lyell Guthrie

Sent by there [sic.] mother

Mrs. Luella Guthrie

There is no other information to indicate where this photograph was taken.  However, a two-minute Ancestry search pinpointed these folks.  In the 1900 census, there is a Guthrie family in Winters, Yolo, California.  Dillard R (head/father), Luella (mother), Kenneth (son), and Lyell H (son).  In the census, the boys were listed as six and four years of age respectively (Lyell’s age is indexed incorrectly).  The boys look a little older than that in the photograph, so I estimate it as being taken about 1905, likely in California.

According to the SSDI, Lyell died in June 1961.  According to the California Death Index,  Kenneth died on 18 June 1952.

I’ve hit a brick wall tracking down a living relative to share this with.  If you have any idea, please email them to me (do not post in comments for privacy reasons, thanks).
