1900 - 1909

After the "Gay Nineties", 1900 - 1909 was a quieter time
Read more ☞


This decade began with a lot of changes: After 63+ years on throne, Queen Victoria died. William McKinley was assassinated and Teddy Roosevelt became President. Wilbur and Orville Wright flew the first documented airplane. As the years moved on, the focus was less on the partying of the Gay Nineties and more on the business of manufacturing: The Model T was debuted in 1908.

I would like to know who all these people are. These are the people I know in this photo. The man in the back row far right is my grandfather, Thomas Whitten Bridges. The man in the back row second from left is probably John McFerrin Bridges, who is Thomas' brother. The woman in white second from the left in the front row is Dovie (Dove) Bridges Miller, who is Thomas' sister. The man in the front row second from the right is Dovie's husband Elliot Frank Miller. This photo was probably taken before Thomas was married, I'm guessing around 1905. Dovie and Frank lived in McKenzie Tennessee so I'm guessing that's where this was taken.

Ethnicity hard to determine. The embroidery may be a clue. Are they hispanic, east european, or hawaiian?
During flight trials to win a contract from the U.S. Army Signal Corps, pilot Orville Wright and passenger Lt. Thomas Selfridge crashed in a Wright Flyer at Fort Myer, Virginia. Wright was injured, and Selfridge becomes the first passenger to die in an airplane accident.

Samuel Wilmer Atkinson or Joseph M Atkinson, Has anyone seen this picture? Is this Samuel or my great-grandfather Joseph?? This picture looks like a Wedding photo. If this is Samuel, then I probably have a picture his first wife Elizabeth Celia Mulheron. Samuel is a brother to Joseph. It could be Joseph's wedding picture also. I have already identified joseph's wife pictures, Ranna Carter.
