Today we will look at three photos of Laurisa’s. I believe that perhaps these three people are related. They were all taken at the same studio..(Hom? Hone? Ione? ) in Brattleboro, Vermont. All of these photos are Cabinet Cards.
My best guess is parents and their older child. I think she looks just like the elderly gentleman. I will date these photos 1890 to 1900.
Who are these people..and how they ended up in Alabama from Vermont will most likely remain a mystery.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update from Norkio:
I think I'd date these a little younger - maybe 1885-1890. Reason is the clothes. Women's fashions in the 1890s really went wide on the arms with big balloon sleeves and poufy trims and frills. These ladies dresses are more sleek, leading me to believe they are of the earlier decade.
Update from Iggy:
Caleb L. Howe, photographer, Union Block, Brattleboro, VT (worked 1860/5-1895) or his son, John C. (worked 1880-1895) appear to be the photographer.
Update From Thomas Saint John:
John Wolcott Phelps (November 13, 1813 -- February 2 -- 1885) was born in Guilford Centre, Vermont, the son of Judge John Phelps and Lucy Lovell of Rockingham.
The Cabinet Card can be found here.
I think from this information we can entertain the idea that the other Cabinet Card is his wife and his daughter.
