Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

Again looking for treasures at Keepers, I found this large portrait of a family. The presentation card is actually much bigger than my flatbed scanner surface is long! They really knew how to present a photo back in the day, didn’t they? So, while continuing to dig, I then found the photo below, which is just the three girls, leading me to believe the fourth child is a son. The girls’ photo is on a photo postcard and it was torn in a couple places. Fortunately digital restoration can make such a difference and we can now enjoy their pretty faces for all time. You’ll notice that all their dresses match in terms of trims, and probably match their mother’s dress as well. I’m saying lavender dresses with white stockings and black shoes.

    They look like they could be Eastern European Jewish decent. Just my first thought as I looked at this handsome family.

    I wonder if the street the photo studio was on is named after the photographer.

    The only thing at 2505 E. Davison Street, Detroit Michigan nowadays is a bus stop – they destroyed a few blocks putting in an on-ramp for Interstate 75 – and the studio was probably torn down. This neighborhood – is between Highland Park and Hamtramck – the home of Chrysler automobile. A rather “ethnic” place, no doubt and heavily Polish.


  3. I noticed that the girls all are wearing earrings! I can see lavender also! Poor babe perched up on that fern stand..:)
