    Rescued Photo: Stevenson Family Photos 1880s

    Shelley Cardiel rescues photographs from flea markets, eBay, you name it. She does what research she can to identify the family and then posts her findings on mailing lists, message boards, and photo sites in an attempt to reunite the pictures with family. What she does is awesome. I contacted her recently to see if she thought including them here might help. I hope it does! Please contact Shelley if you have information about her photos or project.

    I’ve “rescued” two old photographs belonging to the STEVENSON Family. The first is one of George STEVENSON which was taken at the R. G. Gardner Studio in Kansas City, MO sometime in the 1880’s. George appears to be in his 50’s or 60’s at the time. Also with his name someone has also written “Ark” which may mean that he was originally from Arkansas, I just don’t know for sure. . . . [Yes! There’s more!]
