Well, this is awkward. My sister brought out a box of quite old family photos and I wanted copies of them to match with the family tree. I didn’t recognize the faces, but my mother had put some identification on the backs of the studio frames. Time was running out on our visit, so I hastily used Camscanner to capture the front and back of each one.
Back home, several days later, I transferred them to the gallery of my phone and from there moved them to my laptop along with several hundred travel photos. Thinking that I no longer needed the file in Camscanner, I deleted that and the gallery copies.
Then I settled down to edit the photos by tidying up the edges, removing spots, and adjusting the exposure as needed. At the same time, I began labeling the photos in my photo collection. Sadly, when they transferred over from one program to another, they didn’t stay in the same order. The backs with the names separated from the fronts with the pictures.
Who Are These People?
So, here is the question: which of these names goes with which photo above?
There was also a portrait of a baby who might be one of the names shown above. The sturdy shoes and the ball make it likely that the child is a boy. He (or she) is wearing a romper with a bunny embroidered on it. The mat says Coffeyville, Kansas, so this might be Perry Butcher (son of Roy Laverne Butcher who was born in Tyro, Kansas which is in the same county as Coffeyville). (UPDATE: there is no name on the back of this photo. It is not Perry Butcher.)
I started this post with the intent of sharing it on Sepia Saturday. The prompt for October 19 was a photo of a baby in a carriage. Since I don’t have any photos of a baby in a pram at the seashore, the above photo will have to suffice.
