Antique Photograph Album, image #41

Another unknown identification. This one is tragic because the photographer's studio was in Three Rivers, Michigan. Three Rivers was in St. Joseph county, the same place where Benjamin Kingman Curtis and Sarah Lavantia Card were married. Sarah's father and several of her siblings also died in St. Joseph county. Sarah also had siblings who were married with children of their own, so this photo could easily be one of Sarah's niece's.

The photographer was Udell, whose studio was located in Three Rivers, Michigan. The carte de visite style card had rounded corners.

We might be able to date this picture based upon the time period that Udell had his studio in Three Rivers, also the child's clothing and the carte de visite style photograph history.
