Welcome!

I reunite identified family photos that I find in antique shops and second hand stores with genealogists and family historians. If you see one of your ancestors here and would like to obtain the original, feel free to contact me. Donations of pre-1920 photographs are also most welcome. I hope you enjoy your visit!

Super Sleuth Saturday: Florie and Margaret, Newport


Here's your chance to test your photo-sleuthing and photo-dating skills.  This is the photograph,  front and back.  Can you follow the clues the photo gives you?  Or will this one remain a mystery?

  1. This photographing studio looks like it is in England. I found this link: http://newsarch.rootsweb.com/th/read/GLAMORGAN/1998-09/0905204157

    It shows the full address as "C & M WALLIS, 8 & 9 Clarence Place, Newport, Monmouthshire."

    Not related to the family or live anywhere near there. I wish!

  2. Hi Deborah,
    Happy to see you had a look at this challenging carte de visite. You have the address absolutely correct, except for the part about it being in England. Newport, Monmouthshire is actually in Wales. Any guesses on the date?
