Eva Shaw

leave a comment »





This photo is from the first page of the same album. Considering Mary Shaw’s caption, “Eva Shaw ?1880”, below the photo and various other photos in family albums there is not much doubt that this is Lavinia’s younger sister Eva Shaw.

Eva was born in March 1871 and at a guess this child is about 9 putting the date of the photo at about 1880. This would fit with a photo of Lavinia at what looks like about 18 from the same album page. Both photos are from Batchelder and Co. which operated at 41 Collins St from 1867 until 1891 according to SLV notes on similar photos
