Photo Number 1547

This photo from Craig’s Collection is smaller than a CdV.  It measures 3 x 2 inches.

A beautiful little girl with such pretty curls!
The photographer is Chas Lainer at 31 Third St. 
I found this in a search for him:
CHARLES LAINER was born in Austria, in 1857, and was reared and educated in his native land, attending school in Vienna and other places in Europe, where he also pursued the study of art. He came to the United States, spent some time in Philadelphia and Cincinnati, and in 1882 came to San Francisco and established his present business on Third street.
In 1884 he opened a studio at 715 Market Street…perhaps he used old card stock?? Or perhaps the 1885 guess is questionable.

Helen Violet Wood 1885 (?)
It is hard to guess an age for this child. Maybe two or three years old?
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again.

Update from Iggy:
Helen Violet Wood (11 Feb 1884/1886 - Oct 1948 in San Francisco, California) was the daughter of William H and Anne R Wood. She married Wallace Covert Price on July 3, 1913.  This was his second marriage and he had seven children prior to marrying Helen.  They had one daughter together. 

The daughter named Patricia Wood Price was born 1 Oct 1917 in Oakland, Alameda, California and apparently died on Sep 1988 in Genoa, Douglas, Nevada.

The dates given for Helen's birth are confusing, they seem to be either 1884 or 1886.

    1. Something doesn't jibe here. Helen was Wallace's second wife (the first wife was Hattie) and Wallace was 30+ years older than Helen. Patricia Wood Price was the only daughter between Wallace and Helen - the others were Hattie's (Sr.).
