c1896 Carte de Visite of a family, presumably taken in Chile. The portion of the photograph dedicated to the studio imprint is partially missing, but the text of what remains is in Spanish.
Handwriting on the reverse: Papa's mother's sister Isa Coad
Thanks to the clue, I was able to find an Edwin Rowe and wife Isa (Coad) Rowe on records of their children's births at Copiapo, Chile, in the Atacama region. Their children:
- Eva Mildred Coad Rowe, born May 8, 1886
- Victor Georje Coad Rowe, born September 6, 1892
- Miriam Irene Coad Rowe, born January 25, 1894
If you have information on this family, please leave a comment or contact me directly. Interestingly, the name Edwin Rowe pops up in links to Chile even today; perhaps the family stayed and grew.
