Studio Portraits: Families

I have portraits from studios across the U.S. and parts of Europe. Most of these are from the turn of the 20th Century; at least two are dated on the front.

All portraits copyright the original photographers and/or studios. Here in town the family of a prominent commercial photographer still manages the rights to his work, which ranged from the late 1880s into the 1950s.

Most should be natural tone but some files had been converted to grayscale. A blue cast may show up on some, it is a reflection of the scanner light source.
