Balto [Baltimore] Dec. 25th 1880.
I plan to slowly upload the photographs from this album (there are nearly 40). If anyone has information about the album and the original owner, please share.
We believe this is a relative of the Jones or Yeatts family of Virginia. (It is also possible that she was a Beaver family relative, perhaps from North Carolina, but the Jones/Yeatts connection seems more likely.)
If anyone knows who she is, please leave a comment or email me.
Mr. J. W. Whitehead: —
Please send me samples of your navy blue tafatta [sic], width & price. Please send them at once.
Mrs. Almeyda Shelton
R.F.D. #1. Gretna Va.
Mr. J.W. Whitehead & Son,
Date of postcard cancellation unclear, perhaps Gretna, Jun? 23? 1919 or 1915?
Postcard printed by J.P. Bell Company, Lynchburg, VA.
The picture on the front of the postcard is of the Monroe School in Lynchburg, Virginia. If one looks closely, children can be seen in the schoolyard.

In the early 1900s, B.L. Dearing was a photographer in Chatham, Virginia. His studio was located in his house on Reid Street (behind the present-day post office on Main Street).
It is believed that this photograph was taken in his studio in Chatham. Mr. Dearing was looking into a mirror when he took this shot.
