Ellis Album

Black Ellis Album #1, Page 18

BEA1, page 18

This album page is a bit mysterious.  I can see my great-grandmother, Blanche Octavia Huband, in both photos, but the page is unlabeled.  I don’t recognize the other people.  It appears that both photos were taken on the same day as everyone is wearing the same outfits in both photos.

My great-grandfather, Claude Albert Ellis, is not in either photo.  I suspect he was the photographer.

Unfortunately, my great-aunt, Claude and Blanche’s daughter, does not recognize the other people in the photos either.

In the first photo, my great-grandmother is at the far left:

In the second photo, my great-grandmother is in the center:
