Early 1900’s framed 10.75 x 8 inch black and white photo under glass of a handsome mature couple. Inscription on the back states “Mr. & Mrs. Forrest Barber Rome, NY. I was able to find some records on Mr. Barber, and believe he was born in 1853. I could not locate any living relatives in my search. Found at an estate sale, I have cleaned the cobwebs off, cleaned and waxed the frame add some stabilizing glue to the corner seams, and polished the outside of the glass. I did not attempt to remove the photo from the tanned and stained backing paper. In remarkable condition for its age, the frame is solid, with some wear on the corners. I do see a small tacking nail at each corner, but do not know if this was original or was added later. There is some dust visible under the glass. I do see a tiny 2 mm white mark on the wallpaper, not sure if it is dust or on the photograph itself. The photo itself, appears in good condition, with no visible spots or tears. Commensurate with age, the photograph is faded and now has beautiful sepia shade. Nail on back for hanging.

What a great way to add instant ancestors to your home decor. Such an interesting couple, with their stern expressions. The mustache on the gentleman is quite impressive. The Mrs. is dressed in her finest garb with a high neck collar and leg of mutton sleeves. This endearing photo will remind you of yesteryear fashion and demeanor.
