This vintage photograph features an adorable African American baby posing for her portrait at an unidentified studio. The baby is so cute and appears uncertain but inquisitive about her visit to the photographer. The child is wearing a necklace and holding a rattle. The reverse of the image has an inscription. It appears that the baby lived at “182 Yale Avenue N.” in Seattle, Washington. It also appears that the baby’s name was “W. G. S——“. I can not decipher the name and would welcome any help that anyone can provide.  This photograph was purchased in Austin, Texas and was part of a collection of African American images that were originally found in San Antonio, Texas.

PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN IN WINONA, MINNESOTA

A pretty young woman poses for her portrait in the studio of E. A. Lynn, in Winona, Minnesota. The woman appears poised in front of the camera and she has an alert and amused expression. The photographer may be the same E. A. Lynn who had photographic studios listed for sale in Seattle and Tacoma, Washington. His “for sale” notice was listed in a 1911 photographic journal. E. A. Lynn also served as the Vice President (for the state of Washington) of  the Photographers Association of the Pacific Northwest.
