Mystery Photos

Do you have any “Mystery Photos” in your family albums? Our family has quite a few of them and it would be great to know who they are! Thought I’d share.

This “Mystery Photo” was in Lamar Wilkinson’s album which was taken in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.


I have not been able to find anyone else with these features or a hint of identities. There are interesting things in this photo; notice the grandmother sitting in the wicker chair? It is covered with a leopard or bobcat/spotted-cat rug. There is also a rug under the girl sitting at her feet; see the felt backing. This photographer posed these ladies different than most with the one girl reading a book with a pot plant and the girl in front with her stockings showing and her bow tie makes me think its early 1900’s. I love this photo!


This “Mystery Photo” was in a group of photos from Gussie May Brown before she became Mrs. Dan Auld. I have not been able to determine the identity of this vehicle or driver. Great photo!!


Another “Mystery Photo” in the Gussie May Brown photos. What a cute little guy; would love to know his identity, too.


Another “Mystery Photo” in Lamar Wilkinson’s album. These little girls are so darn sweet with their arms around each other. Too cute!
