Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

Poor Martha Smith, her image is fading so we can’t see much of her profile any longer. What we can see shows us a middle-aged woman in a rather nice dress. There is a lot of trim and adornment going on there.

The back tells us a little, but it will be nearly impossible to find Madam Smith due to such common names. She was photographed by J. W. Bryant in La Porte, Indiana. I’d put the image in the 1870s.
