Found in Hampden County, Massachusetts, this is a beautiful close up portrait of Emma, who appears about 18-22 years of age. It is possibly a school, normal school, college or seminary class photo. Emma may be her nickname for Emeline, or others. We also found wide evidence of the Atlas surname in the Chicago Illinois area, presumably German. A well marked early 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)
