Mystery: On the back of the photo is handwritten "Mt Hope." It came with two other photos (posted separately) that have in the same handwriting, "Mt Hope Ks photographer."
This is the ONLY information I have specifically about this photo. I purchased these in a huge lot of photos from Ebay. They have no traceable history as the seller got them from someone who checks the dumpsters behind estate sales around several states in the midwest! It's so tragic. I can only list what is on the individual photos themselves as they all came from different places. That's why I'm posting as many photos as I can, so any more of their history isn't lost. I would be interested to know if they help any family researchers though.
