Rescued Photo: Palmear – Nick Palmear 1890s

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” an old photograph of Nick PALMEAR which was taken at the Childs Studio in Ishpeming, MI in the 1890’s. Nick appears to be in his teens or 20’s at the time the photograph was taken. I think it is possible that he was attending school in that area as the photograph was found with others who all appear to be about the same age. Maybe they went to Northern Michigan University/Northern Normal School? The name Jemima G. CUNDY is also stamped on the back of the photograph as if the photograph belonged to her at some point in time.

I’m hoping to locate someone from Nick’s family so that this wonderful old treasure can be returned to the care of his family. If you are a member of this PALMEAR Family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley Cardiel (
