1901 Graduation Photograph of W. E. Howland from L.T.C.; by a Calais, Maine, Studio
1901 photograph, presumably a graduation photograph of a young man identified on the reverse in very faint handwriting: W. ? Howland, June 13, 1901, L.T.C. The young man's middle initial might be E or D or ? And, to make matters worse, I'm not positive of the middle initial of the institution.
The photograph was taken by the Pearson studio of Calais, Maine. Because Calais is located along the border with New Brunswick, the institution might have been located in the United States or Canada.
Interestingly, there's a Massachusetts Marriage record for the marriage of January 23, 1905 at Lynn, Massachusetts, of William B. Howland, born at Calais, Maine, about 1882, son of Michael Howland and Margaret (Driscoll) Howland, and Blanche B. Roderick of Lynn.
If you recognize the young man from your family photographs or research, or if you have a theory as to the young man's identity or that of his school, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
