Photograph Showcase: “Looking Up a Rock Pile”

Deane and “Duane” Duval, 30 August 1938


What a cool photo! My great-grandfather Francis Henry Duval took the photo and described it as “Looking up a rock pile.”

My great-grandmother was a professional photographer. Before that, my great-grandfather studied photography and practiced. Then he shared his knowledge with great-grandma and his sister. He preferred the darkroom. This lovely image of my Grandma and her brother was one of his practice shots.

His notations on the back:





Happy Thursday! Have you scanned a favorite photo recently? I hope you will preserve one precious photo today. xoxo
