I don't know much more than the name of the boy in the photo, but the image haunted me until I added it to this site. The original was purchased from BC, Canada, so I'm assuming that's where the photo was taken.

Very "Dickensian" in appearance, this is another photo where you wonder about the stories of the people. I find the closed hand of the woman on her husband's shoulder to be especially evocative.

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
