The top corner of the photo is broken off...missing. The name on the back reads Edward J. River and the rest is broken off but appears to be an "s". On the second line it says "Phyllis father". The picture is printed on a hard board and the photo itself is in very good shape. I bought it in an antique store in the Eugene/Springfield area of Oregon...long way from home. I would like to see it reunited with its family.

Penny Everist Robert, I believe this to be a family member...we have a conflict on what my ggrandfathers name is: Frederick Edward or Edward Joseph Rivers...very curious about this. I downloaded a copy so I could have. This may have been a clue for my family. Thank you. Is there any year posted on this photo? He died in 1929.
