1880's Etta Wells signed CDV Photo, Clinton, Rock County, Wisconsin
On reverse: "Etta Wells" is handwritten in pencil. Photo type: 1880's CDV Carte de Visite Photograph, Victorian. Photographer: A.E. Taylor, Clinton, Rock County, Wisconsin WI. (known to be photographer Arthur Eugene Taylor 1850–1905 born in Milwaukee County and died in Delavan, Walworth County, Wisconsin. He also is known to have worked in Walworth County)
Note: Etta, Ettie, or Etty may be a nickname for Harriet, Harriett, Henrietta, Henriette, Margaretta, Lenetta, Lenette, Jeanetta, Jeanette, Ethel, Georgietta, Antoinette, Euretta, Izetta, Juliette, Loretta, Maretta. In Scotland, It is seen as a nickname for Margaret. The Wells family can be found in the Rock County, Wisconsin area, with many in the graveyards, although we could not find Etta.
This family photo is slightly trimmed on edges, usually to fit into the tight Victorian paper photo album sleeves. It does not affect her actual image in any way.
This is a beautiful close up 1870's portrait image of Etta Wells, very clear. Young Etta wears the 1880's hairstyle called "Langtry Bangs" after Lillie Langtry 1852-1829, a very famous and stylish English actress of the later Victorian era. We feel she would have been born about 1860-68. The photo was found in Brimfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts, close to Connecticut. She may have New England relatives. Any help or correction on Etta is appreciated, email Debra here.
Size: 2.5 x 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)
