Burlington Vermont Portraits

This is another set of historic portraits from Burlington, Vermont.  I’m posting them as a set since they were acquired at about the same time, so there is always the possibility that they are related in some way.

There are two photos of the first, square-jawed man.  He looks familiar to me, for some reason.  The second of the two photos is marked “May 18, 1875” on the back.

This next one is particularly nice.  If you zoom in, you can see every detail of her lace and every hair on her head.


A very fine mustache!

This next lady looks very familiar to me.  Can’t quite place the face.


A brother and sister?

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
