A Family Portrait (Mystery Photo #7) - Mystery Monday
(Digital Image. Photograph Privately Held By Cynthia Shenette; Text Copyright (c) 2012 Cynthia Shenette) Isn't this a lovely family portrait? I wonder who these people are. Once again, I suspect they are members of Worcester's Polish immigrant community. Unfortunately there is no photo studio information or information of any kind written or stamped on the photo. Judging by the style of dress my guess is the photo was probably taken some time in the late 1910s. I love the Mary Pickford style curls on the older girl and the hair bows on both girls. It's kind of hard to tell because her face isn't showing, but I suspect the girl with the curls might be the oldest child. The children look to be about two years apart in age, and the baby (who I think is a boy) looks to be about two. Given the ages of the children, the man and woman were probably married around 1908, give or take a couple of years.
If you recognize any of the people in my photo I'd love to hear from you!
