Larkin family photograph C0126
Published by George Mason University Libraries
Biographical information unavailable.
This collection contains dozens of family photographs from the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century, exhibiting a range of early photographic technology including albumen prints, tintypes and cyanotypes. Only two of the photographs are dated--one from 1886 and another from 1905--but several contain inscriptions of photo studios--including G. W. Davis and Unique--with addresses indicating that they were taken in Washington, D.C. The photographs range from professional studio portraits to informal group pictures, which appear to have been taken in more rural locales. Several of the photos show Victorian interiors and exteriors as well as horse carriages, row-boats and railroad tracks. Few of the subjects are identified, but photo-envelopes with the collection include the names Ceyton R. Larkin, Charles Rozier Larkin, Paul S. Williams, and Mrs. J. L. Johnson.
