Orphan Photo #120

This cabinet card is so cute.  On the back, it reads, “Sarah to Ann,” but I have no idea what is means or who they are. 

The photographer’s imprint reads: Turley, Albion, Ind.

Orphan 0119

I wonder who this dapper young gentleman is in this cabinet card.  The photographer is James T. Relf, located in Decorah, Iowa.

Orphan Photo #118

According to the imprint, this photograph was taken by S. Fichtel of Union Hill, New Jersey.  I’m pretty sure it’s Sigmund Fichtel, who was listed in the 1900 census as a photographer, living in Union with his wife Margureth.1


1.  1900 U.S. census, population schedule, Union Ward 1, Hudson County, New Jersey, enumeration district (ED) 57, sheet 7A, page 146 (stamped), dwelling 91, family 154, Sigmund Fichtel, digital images, Ancestry (www.ancestry.com : accessed 20 August 2012); citing National Archives and Records Administration microfilm T623, roll 974.
