Vintage Portraits – Winooski, Vermont

These are some vintage photos I purchased or acquired that were taken in Winooski, Vermont.  If anyone knows anything about any of these people, please drop me a line!

A second batch of Winooski portraits can be found by clicking here.

This first one is marked “Katie & Carrie, Aug 1916”.

The date seems suspicious to me.  According to the Winooski City Directories, Huard and Langlois were partners from 1890 to 1894, then went their separate ways after that.  If this photo were taken in that time frame there are two sisters, Katharine A Baraby  and Carrie A Baraby who would have been about 19 and 22 in 1892.  It could be them.  They can be found in the 1880 census for Colchester/Winooski, the daughters of John Baraby from Canada and Margaret Cummings from Ireland.

This next one has a hand-written note on the back (in pencil) that says “Look out for the boots over head”.  If you look closely you can see what look like boots above them.

About cthomas1967

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
