#1040 Dodge Genealogy Illinois
On reverse: "Fred Dodge" is handwritten in old period pencil. Photo type: CDV Carte de Visite Photograph, Victorian. Photographer: R.W. Hook. Waukegan, Lake County, Illinois. (known to be photographer Robert William Hook 1848-1919 born in Illinois, died in Waukegan, Lake County, Illinois, buried at East Fox Lake Cemetery, Lake Villa, Lake County, Illinois)
This is a circa 1875 "hidden mother" studio photo. The baby's mother would be draped behind holding the baby up for the long 30 second or more exposure in the photographer's studio, quite a feat! A beautiful clear image of baby Fred. Do you know this Dodge family of the Waukegan area of Illinois?

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)
