A bit of a mystery photo., very light in tone. We have enhanced the photo greatly when you buy scans, to better see. This piece also has our own handwritten note, in pencil which reads "Found in Williamsburg Pennsylvania, 2002". Williamsburg is in Lycoming County PA and sits about 83 miles from Middle Creek. This CDV was just listed on our site in November of 2019.

The photo depicts 4 people: A young girl about 14, possibly her sister, about 20-25, an older gentleman and his wife, both in their 40-early 50's. If we had to take a guess, we would say it was taken around 1875 and that this is the Oldt family. The condition is not great on this piece, but it's still a wonderful and rare Oldt family treasure. Any help or correction appreciated here on this mystery, email Debra here.
