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!

Thursday's Children: Constance & Elaine Powell, 1886, Richmond, London, England
The two little girls in this carte de visite photograph are Constance (aged 3 years 6 months) & Elaine Powell (2 years old). The photo was taken in January of 1886 at Byrne & Co. Photographers on Hill Street in Richmond, a burrough of London, England.
I had a quick peek in the census index for England, 1891, and I couldn't find any obvious matches. I am following one possibility, but I'll report back on that if I discover something conclusive.
