Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

I could swear that this girl is the same girl as one of these girls. It is possible this is the earlier photo and the older girl in this picture is the oldest of the three in the second photo. The girls just have such a similarity of features, I can’t discount the possibility they are the same girls.

We add another locale to our puzzle to further confound Iggy: St John’s Michigan. The photographer was Plunkett. By the deckeled edges of the card we know this is about 1895, but Plunkett may have been in business in the 1880s as well.

Only a few more photos left in the Dobb Long Book. Stay tuned for the last few clues to who this family might have been!

    :) Of course I had to look at a map to see where Saint Johns, MI was… just north of Lansing and a good ways (about 100 miles) inland from Muskegon and Holland.

    Thinking that they might have been railroad men (instead of Great Lake captains) I looked to see if there was a railroad in Saint Johns – and there was, the D and M – Detroit & Milwaukee. It doesn’t mean a whole lot – but there were railroads in every place mentioned in the Dobb Long album. Perhaps they ran (and rode) some trains.


  2. Cute girls..the hair is similar to the other photo of the three..it could be. That baby is so plump she makes me smile:)
