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 Adele Shirley. Photo taken about 1918 (could have been as late as 1920). Sadly this little one died 15 April 1919. Her FindAGrave memorial is here.
