The homestead


Lovely image of a young mother, child and their pet. Gives you a little look into how
small town or rural life might have been like in the 1900’s.

She held him down


Nice looking and well-dressed, not sure if they are a young couple
or just relatives. They do resemble each other some what. Could be
middle class relations as they don’t give me couple vibe. Both
have a serious demeanor. Could have had a few words before the photo;
as their attitudes reflect in the picture. 1900’s.

Mr. Witherspoon


There was no writing on this image, but this guy just looks like a
Witherspoon. Great portrait of a man with a tweet suit jacket or coat.
He has the biggest eyes. 1900’s maybe.
