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 set of 2 photos, not reprints. New high quality rigid sleeves are included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy this set alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the fronts and backs 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)
