Mystery Monday : School Photo Album About 1888, Revere, Massachusetts

Posted by on Monday, 16 March, 2015

Who are the people in this photo album? What school is it from?

The following photos are from a school photo album from about 1888. One of the photos is almost certainly my ancestor Minnie Isobel Banks. Who the others are or which school this is, I would love to figure out. I don’t know for sure which is Minnie either. All of these photos are mini tin type photos.

If anyone out there can fill in any details, I would love to hear from you.

Wordless Wednesday: Tin Type photo of a Couple

Posted by on Wednesday, 17 April, 2013

Sorry, I’ve been a remiss about posting lately with a new job and a couple personal things going on, but should be able to dedicate more time to the blog at this point. I plan on catching up on the weekly series I’ve been having by this Sunday.

Do you have any idea when the photo was taken?
