This large piece was most likely once framed, and thus kept in such good condition. It was found in Brimfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts. The surname Andrew is seen as both Andrew and Andrews in census records. A stunning photo cet with certificate, with super clear tintype close up portrait photos of Libbie & Hollis. We were thrilled to find it. Most likely the only copy in existence.

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)
