Postcards: Children

Here we have another set of postcards with children as the subjects.  None of the postcards have postmarks or stamps.  However, the picture of Harvey McDonald is dated 11/24/1931 and was taken at Ferguson’s Studio in Elkins, West Virginia.  Other than their names, the photos of Lushia Dorcas and Katherine Wright contain no other information.  The remaining photos are of unknown children.

Postcards: Women

The next set of photographs are printed on postcards.  I have divided them into subject-matter groups for display purposes.  The first group are images of women photographed alone.  None of the postcards have postage stamps or postmarks, subsequently, they cannot be dated easily.  However, a few are labeled with the name of the woman pictured.

Beulah Brown was born about 1845 in West Virginia.  She married Lonn Smith in 1918 in Randolph County, West Virginia.  There are three photos of a woman named Grace.  Jesse Baxter, born Jesse Brown in 1886, married Dennis Baxter in 1909.  She died in 1968.  The remaining two labeled photos are of Louise Copeland and Rhoda Twilley.  The latter was born about 1899 in West Virginia and married Lawrence Chapman in 1925.

Two of the pictures are stamped with the name of the photography shop that produced the picture.  The Stately Women photo was produced at the Fischer Studio in Marietta, Ohio and the Women by Window was made by C.E. Gerkins in Cumberland, Maryland.
