A beautiful collection of the 3 daughters of Oliver Wood, all found together with the same handwriting on reverse. They bring to mind Louisa May Alcott's wonderful novel, Little Women. This Wood family is an important DAR, Daughters of the American Revolution and SAR Sons of the American Revolutionary War colonial family tracing back to John Johannes Wood 1582–1644 of St Martins in the Field, Surrey, England to the Plymouth Colony in Massachusetts. There is a beautiful red Victorian decorative running border printed around each of photographer Lemuel Cook's CDV photos, something we have not seen before. This is an important DAR, Daughters of the American Revolution and SAR Sons of the American Revolutionary War and colonial new England Wood family.
