Rescued Photo: Peterson Family Photo 1890s

Rescued Photo: Peterson – Mary Peterson 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 Mary PETERSON which was taken at the Pattison Studio in Minden, NE. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1890’s with Mary likely in her teens or 20’s at the time. She is photographed with a paper open in her lap, maybe a graduation certificate or some other document of accomplishment. . . . [Yes! There’s more!]
