Great-Grandmother's Trunk

A photograph by J. H. Lakin of Montgomery, Alabama.

A photograph by H. P. Tresslar, No. 7 Dexter Avenue, Montgomery, Alabama. These photos were not labeled but I assume that they are Sweatt family babies since the Sweatts lived in Montgomery, Alabama throughout much of the 1800's. I looked up these photo studios in an old Montgomery City Directory and it seems they were in business from 1870's thru 1890's. I really love the photo of the baby with the off-the-shoulder dress and bare little toes - sooo cute!
