An Illegible Kirby family name is handwritten on reverse, see scan, may be "Miss Eve S. Kirby when a yearling" or "Geo S. Kirby" or "Wm Geo S. Kirby" handwritten in old pencil....we have looked at this at length, and cannot decipher. The gender could be male or female. Any Kirby family help appreciated, email Debra here. See close up high res scan below of handwritten inscription on reverse. Photo type: Original Victorian CDV or Carte de Visite Photograph, circa 1870s. Photographer: Unmarked, Unknown.
This is a wonderful close up of a youngster looking straight at the photographer. In the Victorian era, boys wore frocks with pleated skirts, or tunics and blouses over pleated skirts, until the age of three or five, as in, this could be a boy or girl! A beautiful signed piece. Found near Syracuse, Onondaga County, New York.
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)
