Good morning friends,
You may be interested in a photo that I ran across recently. It is a portrait size reunion photo that I have had copied and preserved. It hung in my grandparent house since I can remember and was given to one of the daughters. In the photo are Williams, Womble, Hicks, Ricks, Shipes, Hinson, Collins, and Miles families.

Fortunately I know the names of most of the people. My dilemma is, looking at the mass of people and telling you who is who. I think that I have figured out a way, but it will take some time.

The photo was made around 1904 and shows some of the shortcomings of some photos of the era. Some of the people are very clear, while others are not. The film was slow and those who moved at all (children usually) are blurred. It is light on one side and dark on the other. The top was faded and the photographer filled in with lamp black. The original is in a big wide wooden frame.

Regards,  Allen O'Shields
