Thankful Thursday: Sanders Fryher Photo Album – Part 7

Posted by Jim Sanders on Thursday, 10 January, 2013

Many of my readers of this blog know about the 19th century photo album I acquired. I am very thankful for the woman who rescued my family’s photo album, found me and sent me the family heirloom.

Many of these photos have been posted on Wordless Wednesday or in other blog posts. Here are photos 61 – 68 in order from the album. If you can provide any insight into these photos I would love to hear about it. Perhaps you can estimate the year one of the photos was taken or the age of an individual(s) or even perhaps what event was taken place.
