Unknown Young Woman, 1880's


Here is another unknown photograph, this time of a young woman. The photographer, Genelli, operated at 923 Olive Street in St. Louis from around 1885 to 1900. Her curly, frizzy bangs are very characteristic of the 80's, though her collar would have been more fashionable in the 70's.

If you know who this may be, let us know in the comments!

  2. It is really a shame how you can go to the website a see beautiful photos of all nationalities and ageswhat no name. I have photos like that myself that my grandfather had, old tin photo with no name and he passed away in his 90s and never said here this is your ?. old people from the 80s did not talk and write much and that leaves this generation searching for names of family members or pictures. really really sad.

  3. this is a beautiful lady and it is really sad that no one knows her name. I have pictures like this of my grandfather collection and they have no name and I know they are my ancestors and the sad thing about it is that he was living in his 90 and could have told you this before.my heart goes out to anybody who is in this situation. God bless you all
