Rickets, 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 Rickets. One is labeled Mr. Rickets on top and Old Man Rickets on the bottom. The other is labeled Ray Rickets and he is with Kate Fite. Photo taken about 1917 (could have been 1918).
