Oggi è stato il tuo compleanno. Riprendo questa foto sgualcita, una delle poche che mi siano rimaste, e rivedo questa mia espressione piena di stupore. Ho sempre sperato - e a tratti anche pregato - perché quello stupore non cedesse mai il passo all’assuefazione: è stato così, oggi lo posso dire. E questo perché tu lo hai protetto, da dove sei: hai fatto un ottimo lavoro, papà :)! •

#ChrisMysteryPhotoAlbum 9/36 This portrait just looks and feels old. The simple printed backing and the condition of the portrait itself suggests it's older than most of the others in the album. I've auto-adjusted the colour levels on this one to sharpen the image a bit. . Again, having a guess at an age would be great. Husband reckons 13 and 6; I'm inclined to say she's older than that. . Either way, I think there is a possibility I *may* know who the boy is - my great great uncle William Henry Hearn. The only reason I say that is because Westminster Bridge Road is a stone's throw from where a family wedding took place in 1877, meaning he'd be about 7. That's about right. . I've not had chance to fully research the photographer, but a quick search of the Post Office directories show Alfred Tapping was at 6 Westminster Bridge Road between ~1860-1885, and another portrait from him will appear again later. __________ #photoalbum #oldphotos #familyhistory #genealogy #19thcenturyphotos #vintagephotography #victorian #victoriana

Just stumbled across this old photo from when I was first getting to know the amazing @galaxara . I am so proud to see her going full throttle, chasing and living her dream as an artist. Keep going, grrrrl! 💜 #friendship #growth #livingthedream #artist #spacepainting #galaxara #galaxaradk #oldphotos #teatime #hope

My grandma has this old tintype photo. She doesn't know who the man is and there's nothing to suggest who he is. We're not even sure which side of the family he belongs to. It was most likely taken between 1860 and 1900. It's possible it's 2x great-grandfather Calvin Washington Lane (pictured second), but I can't say for certain. #ancestry #familyhistory #genealogy #genealogist #familyhistorian #genealogyphoto #familyphotos #oldphotos #antiquephoto #portrait #tintype #tintypephotography
