Family history blog focusing on genealogy and artifacts for several surnames, including: Ackerman, Brooks, Cabot, Haskell, Holbrook, MacKenzie, Merrill and others. My interest was sparked by my grandmother's research and collection of artifacts that were stashed away in an old slant top desk that is now at my Dad's house.
Studies of Thomasso Juglaris - Emerline Mason Holbrook 1886
Here is an interesting family photo of my great grand aunt, Emerline Mason Holbrook. She was an artist and studied under Thommaso Juglaris in Boston back in the 1880's. This is a photo (actually a tin type) of her class in 1886. She is the 5th from the left in the first row. I have seen several pieces of Emerline's work and they are quite good.
Here is the back of the 1886 photo:
Here is another photo from 1887. In this photo, Emerline is third from the left in the second row.
The back of the 1887 photo includes signatures of her classmates:
