Photograph Showcase: John Costello!

COSTELLO, John in Seattle
John Costello on the left with the striped tie.  Photo is labeled on the front with “Seattle Washin…”


This photo is my new treasure!

It is a photo of my great-grandfather, John Costello.  It is the only known photo of him from before his marriage to my great-grandmother in 1919.  The only known copy of this photo belongs to John’s daughter, Virginia.  Virginia’s niece, one of my Mom’s first cousins, took a picture of this picture and emailed it to me.  I was so delighted to open that email and see this photo for the first time!!

The back is unlabeled and Aunt Virginia does not know the identities of any of the other people in the photo.


Happy Thursday, I hope you will scan and share a special, rare family photo today!  xoxo
