Ellis Album

Black Ellis Album #1, Page 8

BEA1, page 8


This page features sisters Pearl and Margaret Bevans.  I wish there was a little bit more information about these photos!  I wonder where the beautiful oil-paper umbrellas and dresses came from?  It appears that both sisters tried on the light-colored dress.  I wonder if it was their favorite of the two?

The first photo includes both sisters, Pearl on the left and Margaret on the right:

The second photo includes only Pearl:

One of the great privileges of caring for a family archive is the opportunity to scan and share photos.  I love adding each photo to FamilySearch (and the other websites I choose to use for preservation) in the hope that descendants I don’t yet know will find the photos there and treasure them.  ❤️



This post is part of a series sharing this wonderful old family photo album.  You can learn more about the album here.  A digital version of this photo album can be viewed on Flickr here.
