1878 May J. Wallace signed CDV Photo, Sorority Bookkeeper, Boston Mass
On reverse: May J. Wallace, Bookkeeper (with 3 Greek sorority symbols), June 1878 is handwritten in beautiful old period dip pen ink script. Photo Type: CDV Carte de Visite Photograph, dated 1878. Photographer: W. Shaw Warren, No, 41 Winter Street, Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. (known to be Boston photographer: William Shaw Warren 1831-1911)
A beautiful image. We feel May Wallace was born about 1855-1865. It was found in Brimfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts. She was most likely a student at a Boston University, do you know her? She could have been from any state, although generally we feel she was from New England. Any help or correction appreciated, email Debra here.
Size: 2.5 by 4 inches
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)
