1880's Ernest Whitaker Blanchard CDV Photo Set, Westfield, Hampden MA


On front: "Ernest Blanchard" is handwritten in pencil, see scans. The other photo is not signed, but taken by same photographer, presumably on the same day? We believe this to be Ernest's grandmother Jane Whitaker, wife of Arthur Whitaker. They lived together at the time this photo was taken and probably traveled to the photographer's studio together. Photo type: 2 Original Victorian CDV carte de visite Photos, circa 1880. Photographer for both: W. Campbell, 486 Main Street, Springfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts. (known to be photographer William Campbell) 

We believe this photo is Ernest Blanchard and his grandmother, Jane Whitaker, mother to Ada Luella Whitaker Blanchard Carrick, #497 seen here on our site. Oddly enough, they were not all found together, which sometimes happens when family material is released into the hands of antique dealers in a specific area. They were found in Hampden County Massachusetts, and only later did we realize they are related.

Ernest's photo has a rather odd signature, as if the writer ran out of room and did their best to correct themselves, see large scan below.
