I am going to try to post a photo every Monday that I haven’t placed anywhere else on this site. So many of these photos will be brand new to you. I found this photo in a box of old Walvoord photos. It was easy to overlook, because it was so tiny and… “tinny.” It is a tintype. It is only about one inch by two inches and was very easy to overlook. I looked at it with my magnifying glass and recognized Henry Walvoord (1847-1909) immediately.
I scanned it so I could see more detail and lighten up the exposure. It is really a good photo. I date it between 1885-1900. It is really hard to peg a date on this photo, because Henry’s appearance didn’t change too much over the years. If I could identify the other person, I might be able to date it better.
Is it a family member? Is it a business associate? Maybe someone from the Dutch Canning Factory? I really don’t know.
How about you? Is there anyone out there that can identify the person on the left in this photo?
