On reverse: 'William L. Parker' is handwritten in old dip pen ink at top. Photo Type: CDV Carte de Visite Photograph, circa 1860’s. Found in Northampton, Massachusetts, in Hampshire County MA.
Note: A taped newspaper obituary appears glued to the back. It reads: "The funeral of the late William Parker, known among his many friends in this city as "Judge" will take place today. He was a native of Springfield, Mass., and early in life embarked in mercantile pursuits. Well educated and of a social nature he was the center of an admiring circle wherever he went. His sudden death will be regretted by a large number."
This CDV Photo is slightly trimmed on edges, to fit into photo album, does not affect his image. A great piece with many added clues. He is a very handsome man in immaculate black suit, shinny silk top hat and an impeccable look. Do you know Judge Parker, originally of Springfield? He is a mystery to us, and any info would be greatly appreciated.
Note: To us, the signature clearly appears written as William L Parker. It is however possible that the middle initial may be William J. Parker, William T. Parker, William I. Parker. Do you know? A close up scan of the signature is also shown here and a large scan will be sent if you order scans of this photo below.
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)
