I’ve “rescued” an old photograph identified as that of Bertha LIGHTFOOT which was taken at the Mudge Studio in Chattanooga, TN. The photograph was likely taken in the early 1900’s with Bertha about 1 year old at the time. I’m hoping to locate someone from Bertha’s family so that this wonderful old photograph can be returned to the care of her family. If you are a member of this LIGHTFOOT Family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

Found in an antique store. Handwritten note attached - "Mrs. Hattie Faulkner Key [sic] oldest daughter of Aunt Emma". Note the little golden bits attached to her throat and finger to look like jewelry. At first I thought they were debris and almost tried to scrape them off.

A photo taken by professional photographer/documentarian Robert Frank in 1955 Tennessee. This photo was included in his book "The Americans." Born in Switzerland in 1924, Robert's family (who was Jewish) lived under the threat from Nazi Germany although they were safe in Switzerland. This early stress colored his view of the world and he turned to photography to express himself. In 1947, he emigrated to New York City and began his career as a fashion photographer. He soon turned to documenting the lives of people around him and traveled extensively, photographing real people and their circumstances. In America, he thought that there was an overemphasis on money and endeavored to show the bleakness and loneliness of the people in his groundbreaking (and controversial) book "The Americans" (Many people thought the photos were too "dark" and diverged too much from the (less gritty) photography of the day.) Frank went on to become a celebrated photographer and moved on to filmmaking (including a documentary on the Rolling Stones) although he returned to photography in the 1970s. Married twice, he was predeceased by both his son and daughter. He died in Nova Scotia Canada at the age of 94.

This young couple may be of the RIGGS or COLEMAN lines, and may have been taken in TN or MO.
This tintype I suspect is from around 1870-1885. My grandmother’s family came from the Tennessee area so I think this man could be from that area, otherwise I have no idea. He could be a great great grandfather, so please help me identify this photo.
