Sitters ID’d through vintage slip paper behind the plate: Mary E. Mann Stebbins (grandmother Stebbins ) & her mother Eloise Dutton Mann. Both sitters moved slightly during the long exposure creating a slight blur to part of the image. Sits in an early Brady-Style Lyre whole case that is has a repaired spine. Archivally resealed.
