This is one of those amazing children photos that makes you smile. It is rare to see smiling people of any kind in 19th c photography, and Cora is a joy, standing on an old chair in her handmade dress. We believe she was much loved. Sadly, she died young, at about 12-13 years of age. This photo was found in Brimfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts. A beautiful early lost family photo.

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
