This photograph was removed from a photo album found in the Northampton area of Massachusetts, Hampshire County. A very kind dealer / collector was finding and saving extensive family / genealogy material in the 1980-1990’s in that area. We have worked with her on hundreds of items. She bought at many MA auctions and flea markets, and carefully rewrote the family names on each photo as they were originally written on the decrepit album sleeves. Most often the early antique photo albums do not stand the test of time. She is gone now and we salute her wonderful work and love for these old ancestors. A beautiful Armitage family set.
