Post Mortem Photograph Of Female Child In Coffin:
This photograph is a little larger than a postcard. It is a part of a family collection of pictures in a vintage album. Unfortunately, they were not labeled; so we do not know the identities of our own ancestors. I had the lot inspected by a local antique dealer. He claimed that he thought that they were from 1910 to 1920. There is information regarding the photographer on the picture itself. You can do your own research. I've no further information regarding the company name printed upon the photo. My family did have roots in Nebraska and Michigan. So, the address makes sense. It looks as if the name of the poor girl in the casket is somehow embroidered on the underside of the casket lid. It seems to read, "Alydia" or "Lydia". This picture is genuine. My dad and I rediscovered it when we emptied two old trunks that my older ancestors brought with them on huge ships from Sweden. I'll offer a full guarantee to anyone who wins this sale if they are unsatisfied. But, I assure you that it is authentic. There will be many more vintage pictures to follow in the near future. I just wish that I knew something about the child in this one. S & H may be more if outside the continental U.S. Please inquire if you need additional information. Picture edges are pretty good. Overall, the photograph is in very good condition. It has been sleeved within an old, but solid album for many years. My grandmother was a hoarder, but a good one. She maintained all of our family heirlooms with a passion. She was very insistent that items of value were cared for with great effort and passion.
