children of Oscar Benjamin and Esther Mary [Thompson] Curtis
The photograph of the four children was previously added to the blog by another descendant of Benjamin Kingman Curtis. This copy shows the entire photograph, both front and back, including the shape and details of the Cabinet Card style. The picture was the 21st photo in the Curtis family album owned by Mary Lavantia Curtis and the children were her nieces and nephews. The second photo was the 36th photo in the album and was a Carte de Visite style. The baby, Cora Lavantia Curtis, is the same baby in both pictures, sitting in the same chair and wearing the same dress. A photographer's imprint was not on either photo. See the other photo for details about all the children in the family including those pictured here: left to right, Munson Clyde Curtis, Cora Lavantia Curtis, Minnie Belle Curtis, and Benjamin W. Curtis.
