c1890s-1910s Calling Card of Edwin E. Allen of Sanford, Maine
Circa 1890s/1910s calling card of Edwin E. Allen of Sanford, Maine, a printer. Appropriately, Edwin's name is superimposed over a graphic of a printing machine.
From brief online research, hopefully correct: [corrections and additions requested]
His death record and gravestone show that Edwin E. Allen was born in 1869 at Sanford, Maine, the son of George Allen and Hannah (Carpenter) Allen. On January 13, 1896 at Rochester, New Hampshire, Edwin married Hattie B. Wescott, daughter of Charles Wescott and Arvilla (Hodgdon) Wescott. Hattie was born at Cornish, Maine, about 1878.
Edwin and Hattie lived at Sanford, Maine, where Edwin worked as a block printer at a woolen mill. They had a son who died in infancy in 1898. Edwin died in 1914.
