Orphan Photo #48

Orphan 010-A

Orphan 010-B

This real photo postcard was originally featured on my other blog, GenBlog.

Addressee:  Mrs. Homer Moore, Homer, Illinois

Signed:  Mabel

Postmark:  City not show, Washington, 26 January 1912

The message reads:

Dear May: Lula's Terre Haute address used to be 1815 N. 10th St.  I don't know where she is now but wish I did.  She was in school at Granville, Ohio the last I heard from her but that has been several years ago.  Mabel

Lots of interesting info in just this small bit!

Julie, If you look right above the words "Dear May," you'll see what I believe is "Latah, Wn".

Latah, Washington is a rural community in the southeast corner of Spokane County, almost bordering Whitman County.

Looking in the 1910 U.S. Federal Census may bring up a Mabel in Latah, Spokane County, Washington.


Thanks, Miriam! I didn't even see that!!


I was recently in my 'regular' antique mall...so very many photos there its sad they are not with family. Some with names on the back.You don't want more do you?! lol

I love this photograph. I can just imagine holding the baby, placing her down carefully on the rug while someone else takes the shot as rapidly as possible!
