Wonderful, all those invisible mothers (or nearly so). I have one of my great great grandmother holding my great grandmother on her lap. She is simply cut off above her collar. The ferrotype was taken, I think, to pass along to the baby’s father, who was of to the Civil War. She was born in early 1861, he left in the fall, so the dtes fit. Fun to see so many others. You are a whizz!
Thank you, Frances, I have some others, one 1930s from Gainesville, GA, I posted before. Some of these posted today are mothers re-touched out……
Hello, I ran across an old photo album with a number of photographs by photographers you mention here in your blogs: J.M.Tomlinson, Van Riper, P. Prophitt, Julius L. Schaub. It appears to be an
album for a family that lived in the LaGrange/Columbus area during the late 1800s…there are also a number of tintypes which are not marked. The only names written on any of the photos are “H.E. Brooks and Mrs. S.G.Merit. Let me know if this interests you, thanks Jeff
I would love to hear more about this.i will contact you via another email address.
