I am Robert D. King and in my travels, I see family photos lost in antique stores and for sale on ebay. I think that is sad knowing that there are family tree researchers and descendants that would treasure those photos. So I have decided to try and do something about it by returning as many as I can to their rightful families.
So I buy photos with names and dates or places on them and list them on my webpage, so descendants of these lost souls can find them and bring them home. The thousands of photographs are mostly from the 1800's and include Tintypes, Daguerreotypes, Cabinet Cards, Carte-de-visites, Personal Picture Postcards, Photo Albums and Yearbooks.
Recently, I was able to acquire the following album: Chester County, Pennsylvania & Wilmington, Delaware Families Photo Album This is a Civil War era photo album that measures 7 x 5.5 x 2 inches. It is a black leather album with a raised golden rose and white faux pearl pegs. One section of pages have pulled away from the back but the important thing is that the portraits are in excellent shape. There are 24 cdvs, 10 tintypes plus a negative of a man & a horse. Almost all of the photos are from Pottstown, Coatesville, West Chester or Philadelphia, Pennsylvania or else Wilmington, Delaware The names in the album are: Thomas Naylor ----- Wilmington, Delaware Helen Mc Elheney --- a tintype of two women --- Anna Jane Wright ------- Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Esther Moore ----- Wilmington, Delaware Thomas Naylor Jr. ----- Wilmington, Delaware Jas. P.
