Woman in long, dark dress

Date unknown

       These photographs were also sent by ROBERT J. WIDENMANN.

       The photograph of the woman in the long, dark dress was found in a photo album once belonging to Robert's paternal grandmother, nee Albertine SEILER-LEMCKE, whose father may have been from Bremen, Germany.

       This undated photograph had the words "Herren Joseph Hirsch" written on the reverse side.

       Robert notes: "I know of no one living who would be able to identify these or any of the others that I have, so my only hope is that someone 'out there' might have a duplicate with name attached."

       These two mystery photos are among a collection of more than 200 Widenmann photographs preserved in the museum.
