I purchased both of these pictures in a little antique store down the street rom my house earlier this year. I have tried to research them a bit, but I haven’t had too much luck. Both were in the same frame, so I assume that they are related, but then of course they could have just been stuck in the frame together just because they both fit.
1. This photograph has information on the back! Handwritten in cursive is the name Edward Shields. Stamped on the back is:
Prof. D. Pace
76 Skillman St.,
Brooklyn, N.Y. U.S.A.
2. This one had writing on the back, but because it was in pencil it has faded over the years, and my best efforts in Photoshop couldn’t bring the writing to readable. I would guess that her name starts with an F (when turned one way), or an N or M (when turned another way).
