Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

Here we have a baby, perhaps three or four months old, resting on what looks like a miniature easy chair with flower & paisley upholstery. The photo is directly to the right of Mr. Mysterious and also has that lilac tinge of the colodion process to it, so presumably is after 1894. Written above “Chicago” is Io or Jo, or possibly I.O. or J.O. It’s not much, but it is more than we have had for pages on end!

The photographer was Jac. Maul, who’s work we saw previously here. His full name was Jacob Maul, and he has his two photographic medals duplicated in the artwork next to his name.

One thought on “A name, maybe

  1. IntenseGuy says:

    Johanna Sikkema (b. 5 Nov 1900 – 7 Apr 1991)? She was the daughter of Guy Sikkema and sister of Alice Sikkema.

    I think the fellow with the BIG mustache might be Guy Sikkema.
