I've "rescued" an old photograph of a group of friends taken in Denver in
the early 1900's. The photograph indicates that it is a group of "Harriet's
Friends in Denver" and includes the names of all those in the photograph.
Based on limited research I was able to locate some information regarding
people in the group and have included that information below along with a
list of those pictured in the photograph:
Louis LINCK
Lydia EASTWOOD
Carmen SIEWERT
Dorothy SMITH
Florence WISHARD
Margaret WISHARD
Mr. PROUTY
Gladys CRAIGIE
Emma FLEMING
Evelyn CLARKE
Donald DYE
Avery CARTER
Mary Elizabeth LINCK
Florence LEFEVER
Una COOPER
I am hoping to locate someone from one of the families so that this
wonderful old photograph can be returned to their care. If you are a member
of one of these families, or you know someone who might be, please contact
me.
