Rescued Photos LETTER, California & Illinois Locations
Posted by: Kathy Londo Barnes (ID *****0439) Date: September 06, 2012 at 11:41:34

As a hobby I rescued old photos that have identification on them. I found two in a shop & both have the surname of LETTER.

One says, "Taken at Garvanza, California Feb. 27, 1900 & the child in the photo is identified as Francis Letter. Francis is dressed in a dress, wearing a straw hat & sitting on a donkey.

The second on is very interesting. It's taken in the house, possibly in the parlor or sittingroom. The four adults are seated & three of them are holding something. The male is holding a hand fan, next to him is a lady holding a cat & the older lady is holding a basket. The little girl is sitting on the floor & holding a doll.
On the back is written: George Letter & family of Chicago. Elsie, Amy & Francis are identified. The way it's written on the back, I don't believe that the old lady is identified.

I'd like to locate family to send this to. Contact me at: digginroots@yahoo.com for details. Thank you.
