If it wasn’t a card it should have been

Verne & Reno

Verne & Remie

While this photograph doesn’t show any signs of Christmas or other winter holidays, it is good enough to have been featured on a Christmas card. There is a girl, a boy, and a dog, all in front of a nice roaring fire. I am taking a guess at the names. One is Verne, clearly, but the other looks like it could be Remie or Reno, or Ram….  I’m wondering if that is the name of the dog and the handsome young boy has gone anonymous.

This brings an end to the Christmas card series. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have! We will be back to 19th century images next with some really great tintypes and other 1860s CDVs.

    I saw on your post of the 25th that there have been photo reunions. Have you posted about those and if so can you tell me what the dates were so I can read them?

      I too like the peek inside the homes from so long ago. It is so interesting to consider the things that held pride of place so long ago still do in some regards.
