Reuniting James Murray Humphrey Photo with Family Member

Posting about my found photos sometimes brings lost photos to family members.
Today I received an email about a previous post about  James Murray Humphrey and that he is her second cousin.
Hopefully soon this beautiful old photo will find a new home.

It has been a long time since I have posted  here. Will attempt to return more often.
My time is spent on finding and selling vintage photos and paper items on eBay under the name

ORPHAN PHOTO # 129 A Little Girl And Her Book From Ishpeming,Michigan

Here is a darling photo I recently found at a sale. I could not pass up this sweet little girl. Long curly hair, frilly dress with a sash and she is holding a book in her hands.
No name to tell me who she is but she lived in the early 1900s in Ishpeming , Michigan and her photo was taken by Childs Art Galley.
Love vintage photos check out my eBay store to see what I am offering.

IN THE DIRTY OLD ENVELOPE I FOUND ~ SMALL TYPE PRINTS

Going through a box of costume jewelry I bought at Monday's auction. Keeping 2 bangle bracelets for time being that I was wanting. Rest I will resell at upcoming  local auction.
In this box I found a dirty old envelope with metal print type 73 small letter T's. These I am putting up on eBay. For some reason these sell. Will be interested in seeing what they sell for. Would be great for creating jewelry or multi media art or what ever.

ORPHAN VINTAGE 128 PHOTO FAMILY OUTING IN THE WOODS OF MINNESOTA

This photo was among some family photos I bought recently. The family lived in the Duluth, Minnesota area so I am guessing this where the photo was taken.
Large family great clothing. No names but on the back is written Summer 1905. The lady I bought from was a Nelson so sure many of these had that last name.
Thanks for stopping by. Grace

VINTAGE ORPAN PHOTO 127 Creepy Looking Real Picture Postcard Of A Baby

Todays orphan photo is a real picture postcard of a baby. The photo almost looks creepy. Child is standing but I wonder if some one is holding the baby up. Looks to young to stand all by itself. The shoes are dark and blend into the pictures so almost looks like a shoeless baby.
Post card is from the early 1900s. Thanks for stopping by.
