A number of Cartes de visite came along with the archive material, all family members connected one way or another to each other; though maybe in later lineage. All very posed and all having the maker’s name emblazoned on the front. I find it interesting that the first and last image have the ladies with a book and using their finger as a book mark, as if interrupted from the pastime of reading for this photographic interlude.

It is interesting that these last two are not definitely identified. On the reverse of the photograph above are written the following words: “This portrait can be enlarged up to life size and finished in oil or water colours.”
