Lois Russell & Lowell Russell, Bieber, Lassen County, California



My grandmother, Esther Durfee, was a budding photographer while living as a young woman with her parents in Bieber, Lassen County, California. Her father, Thomas Jefferson Durfee was the postmaster there over many years. When young Esther got her first camera she seemed to have made it her mission to photograph every person within the community, or so it seemed! The first photo album has had all the people who were identified in it, scanned.

Today I would like to introduce you to the Russel children; Lois and Lowell (best guess with help of 1920 census). Photo taken about 1917 (could have been 1918).
