Rescued Photo: Breitzmann – Renlarque or Remarque Family Photo 1872

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 identified as Robert BREITZMANN which was taken at the Cramer Studio in San Francisco, CA. The photograph is dated 24 Dec 1872 with a note to “Mrs. PIERCE” and “Santa Barbara, CA” also noted on the back of the photograph. Robert appears to be in his 30’s at the time the photograph was taken. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following . . . [Yes! There’s more!]
