Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

This photo from the C. Murray Album features an older woman with a book open on her lap, surrounded by four children, three boys and a girl. The woman bears some resemblance to one of the women featured early in the C. Murray Album, but I don’t think it is the same woman. If you look back to Who Was She? you will see the resemblance, but I just don’t think it’s the same woman.

The photographer is Dixon in Clay Center, KS, but I haven’t been able to find any information on him.

    The people in these old old photos always look very severe – they had to sit still for some time so that the image would register on the film. Sometimes they even had a “brace” up the back and onto the head so they wouldn’t move. Wouldn’t they be surprised how we take photos now!
