Do you recognise these people?

Paul Leach has kindly sent us photocopies of these three pictures from an 1881 photo album and is asking for your help in identifying the subjects. Do you recognise these people? The photographs were taken in Hoosick Falls and Troy. The album belonged to the late Arthur Vanderkar of Hoosick Falls and his wife Helen, nee Helen Bedard. They were Paul's wife's grandparents. Arthur, known as Artie, passed away 31 March 2005; Helen passed away in 2000. Paul has 54 more photographs from this album, also unidentified; to view the other 54, please click here. If you have old unidentified photographs taken in Rensselaer County, NY or of people likely to have lived in Rensselaer County, you are welcome to email me, Debby Masterson to tell me about them; I can then advise you about how to transmit them to this website.
