Fred Vail




The portraits of Alfred and Ernest may belong to the same set as the four in the previous post but it is interesting to note the different formats used – rectangular for Alfred and the rounded corners for Ernest. The centre portrait appears a few pages further on in Lavinia’s album and is captioned “Fred Vail“, probably by Lavinia. It seems likely that Fred Vail was a school friend of Ernest’s but if so he would have been 20 in 1884. Was it an earlier photo on a Lindt card?
