c. 1900/1910 Photo of Large Group of Identified People, likely Michigan
Wonderful photograph of a large group of people, identified but not placed, on the reverse. No photographer's imprint to give a clue to the locale, but online research indicates the photograph was likely taken in Michigan.
The names, hopefully deciphered correctly:
Mr. F. C. Maddocks
Mrs. F. C. Maddocis
Mrs. S. Riedsma
W. W. Sawyer
Effie Bortle or Effie Bartle
C. T. Altman or C. T. Oltman (there's a hole at beginning of the surname)
If you are related to or have researched any of these names, please leave a comment or contact me directly. I'd be interested to know the genealogy of the individual people and the reason that brought them all together to have their photograph taken.
Thanks for stopping by!
