Ernest Shaw

leave a comment »




From the second page of Lavinia‘s album. Mary Shaw has written “Ernest? Shaw ?1886” on the face of the photograph.

Looking at other photographs of Lavinia’s brother Ernest there seems little doubt that this is him. I’ve posted a three other Batchelder & Co photos which were likely taken at the same time. Ernest looks to be about 16 in this one so that would fit with the c1880 date.
