I discovered a wonderful cache of old photographs in a local antique shop, the owner is letting me post them. Many are marked from photographers in Leonard Texas. So many are named on the backs of the photos ! Unfortunately the writer was a bad speller and the writing is very dim. If you happen to find family in this group, the shop is Yesterdaze Antiques, 1519 Main, Vernon TX – 940-886-6527 (no financial connection to the shop or owner). Just can’t stand for such to not find family ! Photos are circa 1890 – early 1900s.
Writing is hard to read so will do the best I can on spelling and will put ?? marks when I am in doubt.
